"One of the Senate's highest constitutional responsibilities is to provide advice and consent on nominations to the Supreme Court, and I look forward to the Senate fulfilling this critical duty through a fair and thorough confirmation process". It is unlikely that Kavanaugh would land at the outermost pole of the court, where Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch, Trump's first appointee, have aligned.
As a member of Ken Starr's staff, Kavanaugh pushed for an aggressive prosecution of President Clinton.
A liberal group, Demand Justice, has promised its own $5 million ad campaign to defeat Kavanaugh, focused on Democratic senators from Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia and Republicans from ME and Alaska. If a doomed stand against Kavanaugh strengthens the GOP's hold on the Senate, conservative judges will be easier to confirm - and liberal ones more hard, should a Democrat capture the White House. Rob Portman talk about Kavanaugh's qualifications before a meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill July 11, 2018 in Washington. They already have also been hammering the message that he would vote to undermine key progressive priorities like the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion rights and the Supreme Court decision affirming the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
More than any other red-state senator, Heitkamp has received a remarkable amount of help from Republicans to keep her job.
"Trump has been unequivocal that he intends to appoint a justice who will overturn Roe v wade", said Clarke.
At the White House Monday, Kavanaugh invoked the value of legal precedent again, saying, "a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent". The court's oldest remaining justices, two liberals and a conservative who are 85, 79 and 70, haven't suggested they're going anywhere and appear in fine health. He supported releasing the girl to a sponsor, where she could obtain an abortion if she chose to do so and leave the government out of it.

"The Democrats who are participating in this charade know this is bad for the republic, but they've just so politicized the process that they can't get out of the cycle", Sasse told CBN News.
In 2015, Kavanaugh, a Roman Catholic, filed a dissent in a case involving religious employers and reproductive rights. While Elian's father wanted him back in Cuba, his other relatives believed it was best if he stayed in the US with them.
The Affordable Care Act is "wildly popular and necessary in the reddest of states", said Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, in an interview Tuesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".
"I believe it is vital that the President be able to focus on his never-ending tasks with as few distractions as possible", Kavanaugh wrote.
"There is no one in America more qualified for this position, or more deserving", the president said.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warns Kavanaugh will join a decision that takes away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions or protect the president against the Mueller investigation. "And a president who is concerned about an ongoing criminal investigation is nearly inevitably going to do a worse job as president".
