Everything you need to know about Trump's Supreme Court pick

Kavanaugh is a favorite of the GOP legal establishment, and his arrival as President Donald Trump's nominee was greeted on Capitol Hill with praise from Republicans and skepticism from Democrats.

But McConnell, who met with Kavanaugh in his office, praised him on Tuesday as a "great nominee" who deserves bipartisan support.

"An exhaustive and fair process took place for Justice Gorsuch, who I supported", Heitkamp said. "What we'd like to see is a few open minds about this extraordinary talent".

"There's a potential here for things to get really snarled", he said, adding he believes the Senate should hold off on a confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh until all the documents are reviewed. "The country wants the President to be "one of us" who bears the same responsibilities of citizenship that all share". "I think he is an excellent choice by the president". "There are two or three key Republicans that he is going to have to win over and that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell is going to have to win over". Conservatives are hoping to win over at least some moderate Democratic senators to solidify Kavanaugh's chances.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate's Democratic leader, said his party's lawmakers did indeed care who the nominee was - and what his views were on such thorny issues as abortion and Trump himself.

Sen. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania was the first senator from a red state to come out against the nominee, even before Trump announced who it would be. By an 8-point margin, voters in that poll said the Senate should consider Kavanaugh prior to the November midterms.

It also has 3.5mm audio jack and a USB Type-C 3.1 port that can charge the tablet or transfer data to external devices. Panay called the new tablet a "new entry point for the Surface family", citing the $400 Dollars price tag ($529 CAD).

Kavanaugh grew up in Maryland and graduated from Yale and joined the Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006 after two nominations from President George W. Bush.

Democrats are likely to confront Kavanaugh with those words when he sits for his confirmation hearing. "The stakes are high for the LGBT community". Kennedy, though a conservative, was a swing vote on the U.S. Supreme Court many times and will be retired effectively as of July 31, 2018.

It's been used as a symbol of the threat to abortion rights, and that's how Frankel used it Wednesday as she and U.S. Reps. His own writings make clear that he would rule against reproductive rights and freedoms, and that he would welcome challenges to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. His nomination must be approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee and then by the full Senate.

Some Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have vowed to fight Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court in the Senate.

Trump's success in confirming conservative judges, as well as a Supreme Court justice, has cheered Republicans amid concerns about his limited policy achievements and chaotic management style.

"I don't have an impression on Judge Kavanaugh as to where he may fall on the issue of abortion as well as the many other issues that I will weigh as we move forward with this process", Murkowski said.
