Fallon, who is the executive director of Demand Justice, a new group that promotes progressive judicial nominees, said his organization has been working to persuade senators to oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Before he was a judge, he ran an investigation into the death of a deputy adviser to President Bill Clinton. George H.W. Bush put David Souter and Clarence Thomas on the court in his one term in office. At the same time, several democratic senators are facing re-election in more conservative states and will be faced with the choice of supporting their party or having to defend a vote against the president to a constituency that largely supports him.

Fourth, senators will also demand to see a treasure trove of documents that may unlock previously hidden aspects of Kavanaugh's views.

"John's not going to give up and he's not going to resign, and he's said wonderful, brilliant things about Judge Kavanaugh", former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac and Gaydos. "I have every confidence that this man is going to be confirmed, as he well should be". We need your help in the coming days to ensure your USA senators vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. His opponents will contest this conclusion, but largely because they are focused less on what the law requires than on winners and losers, and they fear that the undoubtedly conservative Kavanaugh will rule against them in many contexts. Orrin Hatch of Utah, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas and Lindsey Graham of SC. Enzler, who attended the White House announcement Monday, said Kavanaugh is part of a Roman Catholic society that volunteers to serve meals a number of times a year.
