In confirming Trump's first Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Republicans eliminated the 60-vote requirement to advance a nomination to the high court.

Prior to being tapped by Trump, some conservatives questioned Kavanaugh's bona fides, and he's controversial with Democrats because of his role in the Starr investigation of Clinton.

"President Trump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block", Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement moments after Trump's announcement. And when I say "the conservative cause", I don't mean just the positions your local Republican congressional candidate might advocate.

John Roberts and Elena Kagan also had time working in the executive branch that led to a large volume of paperwork being released before their Senate hearings. Indeed, Vox points out, CNN's Jim Acosta reported that the Trump team reviewed these comments by Kavanaugh before choosing him. During a presidential debate in 2016, Trump said Wade would be "automatically" overturned if he had the opportunity to appoint multiple justices. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also received a heads-up from the president.

The appointee would replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, 81, who announced last month that he will retire this summer.

President Donald Trump has picked a Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, who doesn't think presidents should have to spend their time on pesky criminal investigations. And they certainly want Trump's choice confirmed before the November election, when Democrats have a long-shot chance of retaking the Senate majority.

The White House says Pence is also planning to attend the weekly Senate policy luncheon with Republican senators to discuss Trump's nominee.

A coalition of liberal groups has organized at least 39 events on Tuesday around the country under the #SaveSCOTUS banner, a reference to liberal fears that the next justice will shift the court to the right.

The Democrats are trying to pressure two Republicans, Sens.

The White House reportedly sent an email to industry stakeholders Monday night, highlighting Kavanaugh's pro-business and anti-regulation record in an attempt to get their help to push through his nomination. Since 2006, he has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. But almost all Senate Democrats and many Democratic voters are expected to oppose Trump's nominee.

The state of play: The polls shows three Democratic senators are poised to lose their seats to Republicans - Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Bill Nelson in Florida and Joe Donnelly in Indiana.

As how Kavanaugh would rule on the highest court, perhaps the most encouraging evidence comes from a speech he delivered previous year to the American Enterprise Institute on the legal philosophy of the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist, whom he called "my first judicial hero". The White House said Monday that former Arizona Sen.

The White House hopes Kyl's close ties to Senate Republicans will help smooth the path for Trump's eventual selection to win confirmation.

Now, Casey is certainly within his rights to oppose Kavanaugh because he finds his votes in the various cases referenced above extreme or problematic. Before Trump had even announced his pick, a crowd of protesters gathered at the Supreme Court building in Washington to express their opposition to whomever was selected.

Judge Kavanaugh graduated from Yale College in 1987, and from Yale Law School in 1990, where he was a Notes Editor of the Yale Law Journal.
