Senator Grassley backs President’s Supreme Court nominee

In addition to abortion, Baldwin also pointed to concerns about the fate of ObamaCare and protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions in explaining her opposition to Trump's latest Supreme Court pick. But, unlike presidents or members of Congress, Supreme Court justices do not have term limits - they serve until they resign or die. "If Judge Kavanaugh is confirmed, women's freedom to make decisions about their bodies, reforms to our health care system, the quality of our air and water, and much more will be at risk".

During Senate hearings, Kavanaugh will undoubtedly be questioned about whether he would support overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a woman's federal right to an abortion.

The White House said some of Kavanaugh's credit card debt listed on his 2016 financial form was due to buying season tickets to the Washington Nationals for himself and several friends, but officials stressed that he was reimbursed for the friends' tickets in 2017.

I think he seems to be a very fine person of high moral standards, a family person who's very involved in his community, has all the right qualities.

Kavanaugh's hundreds of judicial opinions show his commitment to careful, honest, detached interpretation of the Constitution and laws of the United States. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska made clear that while they're both in the earliest of stages of reviewing Kavanaugh's record, they both find him to be "qualified" for the position. "I look forward to meeting with him and discussing his record first-hand".
