Mitch McConnell Expects Vote on Brett Kavanaugh Before October

Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling should stand, according to a Gallup poll.

The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice may force some red state Democrats into a tough political decision.

Demand Justice, using a portion of its $5 million budget on the ads, said "courts are supposed to be the place that protects the rights of all Americans, but Trump is now stacking them with people loyal to him and his agenda". A conservative stalwart of the Washington establishment, Mr. Kavanaugh's nomination is the culmination of a three-decade push for a reliable conservative majority on the United States' highest court.

Kavanaugh, for his part, has only ruled on one abortion case in his 12 years as a federal judge.

In remarks transcribed by the governor's office, Cuomo said: "For years, what the Republicans in the [Albany] Senate have said, 'well, we don't need ny law because we have Roe v. Wade and nobody's insane enough to try to roll back Roe v. Wade'".

Gerard also objected to Kavanaugh because he would "deny women their right to abortion after he tried - ultimately unsuccessfully - to prevent an undocumented minor who was in government custody from obtaining the procedure". Yet, he didn't reject Trump's nomination, as a strict constructionist and man of honor should have.

Great Britain? You understand what I'm saying?' "Some of them are protesting in my favor, you know that?" he said. The full interview between Piers Morgan and Donald Trump will be airing in the United Kingdom today.

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has not released a statement on whether or not she plans to support Kavanaugh's appointment.

The Gallup Poll was conducted between July 2nd and July 8th with a 3 percent margin of error.

The latter is more likely; the former more desirable.

Though Kavanaugh's confirmation remains uncertain because of Republicans' razor-thin 51-49 majority in the Senate, the moderates' early reactions indicate that millions of dollars in spending by liberal groups to sway key senators against Kavanaugh may ultimately prove fruitless.

Baldwin announced on Thursday that she will oppose Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
