U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin announced Thursday that she will join fellow Democrats in opposing President Donald Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, saying Brett Kavanaugh would "turn back the clock on a woman's constitutional right and freedom to make her own health care choices".

Kavanaugh and Vice President Mike Pence met Tuesday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Like the other eight justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, spending his undergraduate and law school years at Yale. Still, Sanders said he was confident that Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was committed to - and capable of - keeping the caucus united, citing the New Yorker's work during previous high-stakes, high-profile fights.

Republicans control the Senate with a 51-49 majority. "And particularly because Judge Kavanaugh has spoken out in speeches and made rulings against the ACA". "He is widely admired for his intellect, experience and exemplary judicial temperament", he said.

The poll also found the American public is torn on whether a "qualified" and "ethical" Supreme Court nominee should be evaluated on his stance on a specific issue.

She watched and snapped photos as Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside of Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, D.C. Four states - North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, and Louisiana - would automatically ban abortions.

In rare form, Trump reportedly was so invested in building the suspense around the decision that he didn't tell aides or close associates about his decision and the White House kept the circle of people informed on the selection process thin.

All three released statements that focused on their willingness to fully vet the nominee. Tina Smith, D-Minn., said from the Supreme Court steps Monday night. "I will take the same approach as I have previously for a Supreme Court vacancy".

Kerber through to Wimbledon final after easy win over Ostapenko
In the first set, the experienced Kerber broke twice while the only break-point Ostapenko earned was when she was leading 3-2. So I remember I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final.

Ingraham said she found none of that "display. attractive to me".

He said he expects interest groups will undertake a massive effort - including spending millions of dollars - to persuade senators in both parties who might be on the fence. The two have supported access to abortion services, and activists have already begun sending wire coat hangers, as a symbol of an era when abortion was illegal, to Collins' office.

The records also showed that Kavanaugh, nominated by Trump to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, had between $45,000 and $150,000 in credit card debt in 2016, which was paid off by the following year.

If Kavanaugh wins confirmation, he would cement the conservative 5-4 tilt on the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh continues working to win over senators on Capitol Hill ahead of his confirmation hearing.

He will be accompanied by former Sen.

He is a former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he participated in the confirmation of four justices.
