"But I just wanted to highlight that to him", Sullivan said.

"I think immigration is going to be dominating. and [the] economy and those kinds of things will sort of reset".

While some Supreme Court justices boast assets worth well over $1 million, President Trump's nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy - Brett Kavanaugh - appears to lead a much more modest lifestyle.

It is noteworthy that the nominee once served as a law clerk to Kennedy, who was a swing vote on the nine-member court on key issues, including abortion and gay rights.

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement.

When you represent one of the most pro-Trump states in the nation, you automatically make the list of Democrats most likely to cross party lines. "Still, they could try to sour the hearings by attacking Judge Kavanaugh and looking to complicate the proceedings whenever possible".

"Sen. Jeff Flake said in a statement: "As I have said before, approving a nominee who will interpret the constitution rather than legislate from the bench should be our top priority".

According to this system, the only judge more conservative than Kavanaugh is Justice Clarence Thomas.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to oppose Kavanaugh with every means at his disposal.

"There's a lot to dislike about Brett Kavanaugh's record - including his hostility toward consumers". "Critics on the Right have pointed out that while Kavanaugh is undoubtedly brilliant and conservative, he seems to be something of a judicial politician".

More than 400 upset alumni, students and educators are calling for "moral courage" from the Ivy League school in an open letter online to condemn Kavanaugh, fearing that he would overturn Roe v. Wade, harm the environment, twist the First Amendment, and "act as a rubber stamp for President Trump's fraud and abuse", The College Fix reported.

McConnell compared the Democrats' quick targeting of Kavanaugh to their targeting and successful blocking of Judge Robert Bork, who President Reagan nominated to the Supreme Court.

"It seems to be that if you are running for president on the Democratic side in 2020 or thinking about it, you have to prove you are the most insane person when it comes to Trump nominees", Graham said in the interview with Fox host Martha MacCallum. Previously, Trump nominated Georgetown Prep grads Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and Jay Powell as Federal Reserve chair. Collins is considered a Republican who often works across the aisle and has voted with both Democrats and Republicans.

On Kavanaugh's chances to be confirmed by the time the new Supreme Court session begins in October, Grassley said that "with the possibility of getting five or six Democrats and all the Republicans sticking together, yes, but if all the Republicans don't stick together and the Democrats smell blood, then I don't think we'll get any Democrats".
