How Does A Case Get To The Supreme Court?

Brett Kavanaugh appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee in April 2004

"There are two or three key Republicans that he is going to have to win over and that [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell is going to have to win over".

President Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy was met with swift partisan response from many in Congress, emphasizing the power of a narrow group of uncommitted senators.

Texas may have an ally to gain if President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is confirmed. Democrats and abortion rights activists have sounded the alarms on Kavanaugh, whose judicial record indicates that he does not support abortion. "I think that getting along with Russian Federation, getting along with China, is a good thing". "The country wants the President to be "one of us" who bears the same responsibilities of citizenship that all share".

If Kavanaugh wins confirmation, he would cement the conservative 5-4 tilt on the Supreme Court.

"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interests", said the Iowa Republican.

LEO: Well, I don't think so.

A Republican strategist involved in Senate races said court appointments are hugely motivating factors for evangelical voters and some rank-and-file Republicans who weren't Trump supporters right away. Conservatives are hoping to win over at least some moderate Democratic senators to solidify Kavanaugh's chances. He said they could hurt Kentucky. "But what the American people ought to know is that, as the president said today, this is not an issue he discussed with Judge Kavanaugh; I didn't discuss it with him either".

As a Supreme Court justice, Kavanaugh would make about $255,300 per year.

Kavanaugh's name came to Trump through a list of candidates vetted by the Federalist Society.

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. "The stakes are high for the LGBT community". He is also widely known as the "swing vote" in many Supreme Court decisions.

He is a former member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he participated in the confirmation of four justices.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reiterated his pledge to "fight this nominee with everything I've got". King also says calls to his office are overwhelmingly opposed to Kavanaugh.

"We can't ignore the reality that Donald Trump wants to take us back to a time when insurers could refuse coverage to people with pre-existing conditions or that he promised to only nominate Justices who would put the government back in between women and their doctors", said Duckworth, a Democrat from IL.

Those protesting are calling on Florida Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio to reject the nomination. Before that, Kavanaugh worked for Bush in the White House and during his election recount with Democratic opponent Al Gore in 2000.

"His public record is a very deep mine that has to be explored", said Sen.

Vice President Mike Pence, who was accompanying Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill, expressed confidence about the nominee's prospects.

The American Civil War started in 1861, after a tense decade of increasing hostility between Southern Democrats who wanted to extend slavery beyond its boundaries as established by constitutional laws and Northern Republicans who saw slavery as evil and wanted to keep it within those limits.
