"Judge Kavanaugh has the qualifications that make him immensely qualified to take a seat on the highest court in the land". McConnell had said the victor of the presidential election should make the choice.

Trump announced his choice with a prime-time address from the White House East Room. The Environmental Defense Fund, for example, said it will be examining Kavanaugh's record as his nomination moves through the confirmation process. Kavanaugh, who serves on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, is expected to be less receptive to abortion and gay rights than Kennedy was.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh, questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice.

Conservative supporters say Kavanaugh is an originalist and not necessarily pro-business - a judge who is likely to restrain government agencies from interpreting the law too broadly and imposing far-reaching regulations. Kavanaugh later worked with independent counsel Kenneth Starr during the investigation of President Bill Clinton. "The country wants the President to be "one of us" who bears the same responsibilities of citizenship that all share". Manchin emphasized the importance of the Affordable Care Act in his decision.

Kavanaugh, in brief remarks at the White House, underscored his conservative credentials.

"My judicial philosophy is straightforward", he said.

An Alabama law mandated that abortion clinics can not be within 2,000 yards from a school before a judge struck it down. "A judge must interpret the Constitution as written".

"With Brett Kavanaugh as his SCOTUS pick, Mr. Trump is trying to force his repressive, bigoted agenda into our courts - and our lives".

Trump published a similar list during the 2016 campaign, and it was widely credited with helping him win the votes of social conservatives who otherwise might have been skeptical of a thrice-married billionaire from NY.

Since the day Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, the left's screaming has been about Roe v. Wade. "But I wouldn't have a broad rule that you can't, you know, review anything against President Trump because he chose you". Jon Kyl, his guide for the confirmation process.

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Jacobs wrote that Kavanaugh's use of the century-and-a-half-old law validated the Obama administration's argument before the Supreme Court that the mandate was legal since it was a tax. Trump's fellow Republicans hold a 51-49 Senate majority, leaving them little margin for error.

On Tuesday, the Tour will head to Brittany, as the riders start in La Baule and end in Sarzeau after a 195-kilometre route. It was a double celebration as the victory also thrust teammate Greg Van Avermaet of Belgium into the yellow jersey.

Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana said he was bracing for a tough confirmation battle as Democrats focus on abortion. Some lawmakers have gone as far as to suggest Kavanaugh's elevation will be a blow to American women - shutting out their hard-won freedom, particularly in the area of female reproductive rights, and leaving it in the hands of five male conservative justices.

He's been called the "Forrest Gump of Republican politics" by Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., because of his placement at key moments in recent political history. "The most important thing we can do".

A senior White House official says Trump called Kavanaugh on Sunday evening to inform him that he was his choice to be nominated to the Supreme Court.

The president has also been wooing red-state Democrats as a kind of insurance policy. Chris Coons said at a press conference Tuesday along with other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Like Neil Gorsuch before him, Kavanaugh is an ideologically driven pick designed to create an activist Supreme Court that will undermine rights and protections for women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, and all vulnerable people". And all three are running for re-election in November in states Trump won.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens.

Democrats are specifically targeting two pro-choice Republicans, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Pence himself inadvertently added to those concerns on Tuesday, when asked whether he still supported overturning Roe v. Wade.

Senate Republicans' stonewalling strategy extended to lower courts as well.

Imagine this: In July 1974, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the president of the United States had to turn over evidence in a criminal proceeding, a decision that led, less than a month later, to that president's resignation. Dozens of additional nominations are pending - a list that will soon include Trump's second nominee for the highest court in the land.
