US Judge Brett Kavanaugh speaks after being nominated by US President Donald Trump

Brett Kavanaugh will be under the microscope for the foreseeable future after President Donald Trump nominated the Federal circuit judge to replace justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court.

Conservatives will look to Donnelly, Heitkamp and Manchin as potential Democratic votes in favor of Kavanaugh, since the three senators face tough re-election races in the fall in red states won by Trump in 2016.

Democrats, including Senators Tammy Duckworth and Dick Durbin, are anxious Kavanaugh could try to weaken the Affordable Care Act and abortion rights should he be confirmed to the bench. Shah said the undisclosed number of unidentified friends paid Kavanaugh back for their share of the tickets. The NRA's six million members and tens of millions of supporters who voted for President Trump have ensured that the framers' vision of constitutional freedom will have a strong voice on the court for decades to come.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, right, meets with Sen. They didn't care as much about picking Supreme Court justices as Republicans and Trump did.

Baldwin, like other Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh, cited concerns that abortion could be banned as a reason to not support him. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas and Lindsey Graham of SC.

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the USA constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale.

Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh took time out from his meetings on Capitol Hill this week to serve meals to the homeless at a Washington shelter. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) haven't expressed deep reservations about Kavanaugh. Manchin has. But Donnelly echoed Manchin when he said, "I work for the people of IN and I want them to have a voice IN this". Both senators joined Sen. At the event, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that he will fight the nomination "with everything I've got". But one thing is clear: If Trump thinks this is going to be Gorsuch 2.0 - a relatively smooth process that inured to the president's political benefit on the way to an inevitable confirmation - he is mistaken.
