Al Kauffman, a professor at St. Mary's University School of Law, said Kavanaugh has a pretty good chance at getting confirmed based on his qualifications, but it will be a very close vote. Tom Carper, said Monday he is against confirming Kavanaugh.

"A seat on the Supreme Court would let Kavanaugh and his allies expand attacks on the ability of government to regulate and enforce the rules on behalf of ordinary people", said Linda Jun, senior policy counsel at Americans for Financial Reform.

Asked whether the Senate should hold confirmation hearings this fall, or whether it should wait until after the midterms, Americans say by a 5-point margin that it should act before the election.

The group went on to explain why it sees Kavanaugh as "especially dangerous" in a series of tweets. Kavanaugh is meeting with members of the Senate after U.S. President Donald Trump nominated him to succeed retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy.

McCain said "Over the course of Judge Kavanaugh's impressive legal career, he has built a reputation as a fair, independent, and mainstream judge who has earned widespread respect from his peers".

Starr says Kavanaugh has the merits to become the next Supreme Court justice.

So, in the middle of a tirade against the Democrats' "outlandish" attempts at trying to stop the nominee's confirmation, McConnell took aim at the article as an example of what he claimed was an attempt at "blatantly misrepresenting the record and character" of Kavanaugh. Success is fragile, "and it's more accurate to say that nothing recedes like success", he says.

A cadre largely affiliated with the anti-Trump group Indivisible is cajoling the Democratic leader to reschedule an in-person town hall in Brooklyn after having to bow out at the eleventh hour last week. "In light of President Trump's promise to appoint justices who would overturn Roe, this nomination could jeopardize the right to an abortion millions of women and families have relied on for more than four decades", the ACLU said in a statement. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens Roe v. Wade.

She watched and snapped photos as Kavanaugh was serving meals to the homeless outside of Catholic Charities in downtown Washington, D.C. "So this is a stunning thing to me that is so shocking that we're going to have to allow this to happen".

Yet there's little doubt that Kavanaugh, a solidly conservative, politically connected judge, would shift the nation's highest court further to the right.

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South. "Brett Kavanaugh is hands down among the finest".

"If the Democrats think that the pressure campaign that they've unleashed in Maine... is going to have an impact on me, they are sorely mistaken", said Collins, Politico reported.
