Supreme Court nominations made, Trump may have none to go

Supreme Court nominations made, Trump may have none to go

A partisan divide over U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh deepened Wednesday, with Republican senators extolling his judicial record while Democrats demanded time to thoroughly vet his writings and opinions on matters ranging from environmental regulation to executive authority. John McCain of Arizona, nearly every vote matters.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said in a Fox News appearance that opposing Trump's nominee before he or she was even named was "troubling" and "not the way a democracy and federalism is supposed to work".

Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh meets with Sen. And since 1930, no Supreme Court nominee has lost a confirmation vote when the president's party controlled the Senate. Neither side wants to risk a surprise in such a highly polarized political environment by picking a justice who turns out not to vote as expected.

Barring any unexpected discoveries, do you expect Kavanaugh's nomination to be successful?

In that case, Agri Processor claimed that undocumented workers were not covered by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 because a more recent law ― the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 ― said it was illegal to knowingly employ them.

But if they are the deciding vote against Trump's nominee, then voters in their states - which all voted for Trump decisively - would be more energized and determined to throw them out of office.

Democrats should force the issue by using the substantial power of the minority to grind the Senate to a halt and scuttle other Republican priorities - including funding the government when the current fiscal year ends September 30... Step one is to prevent any red state Democrats from breaking with the party by any means necessary.

Republicans are pushing back, accusing Democrats of distorting the judge's words.

"That's going to go up to the [nation's highest] court and that's huge", she continued. It's still not finalized, aides say, when he'll hold his first meeting with Democrats - whether leadership or on the committee. Kavanaugh is meeting with many lawmakers during his confirmation process to give them chances to talk with him personally.

While President Trump stands staunchly against the Clean Power Plan, a Supreme Court decision narrowing the authority of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gasses could limit the ability of future administration's to change course. He will eventually need a majority vote in the Senate to approve his nomination. "Don't defame him for living a life most of us would be proud of", Graham said.

In 2015, Kavanaugh, a Roman Catholic, filed a dissent in a case involving religious employers and reproductive rights. The ease of Supreme Court confirmations depends, in part, on electoral politics in the Senate.

"As a point of comparison, look at Bob Casey who is also up for re-election in the Trump-won state of Pennsylvania".

The question heading into the midterms, say strategists, comes down to who is more motivated -the conservatives eager to support Kavanaugh or the liberals who are fiercely opposed.

The large number of Democrats eyeing presidential runs in 2020 further complicates the dynamic as they harness the energy and rhetoric of the left in ways that might not help red-state Democrats this year. CNN has rated the race as lean Democrat.

I do. That's not to say it won't be hard. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska made clear that while they're both in the earliest of stages of reviewing Kavanaugh's record, they both find him to be "qualified" for the position. Rather than just playing it safe with a broad swath of voters anxious about access to health care and abortion, Democrats now see an opportunity to excite their base by fanning fears that the highest court in the land could turn into a bulwark to protect the man appointing its members.
