"Kavanaugh has proven to be a staunch conservative who has relied on originalism and textualism while serving on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit".
Heitkamp issued a lengthy statement that, in part, highlighted her vote for Trump's previous Supreme Court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch.
Leonard Leo, who is on leave from the Federalist Society and has been advising Trump over the court nomination, said he assumes Kavanaugh, Barrett, Hardiman and Kethledge "are the four" who are getting the most focus.
The White House wants Kavanaugh to be in place by October 1, when the court's next term formally opens, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will vote to confirm Kennedy's successor in the fall. "I will tell each senator that I revere the Constitution", he said. Kavanaugh's nomination "sets in motion a hard right turn for the country that may be irreversible in our lifetime", said Nan Aron, the president of Alliance for Justice, a liberal group that has studied Kavanaugh's judicial opinions.
While the statement also spelled the judge's name as "Cavenaugh", the obviously pre-written placeholder characters "XX" caused much mirth on social media. Democrats who were invited but declined included Sens.
Congrats again Brett Kavanaugh.
But conservatives perceive Kavanaugh's time as a Republican operative favorably, and his connections from years in the executive branch could serve to soothe Republicans ahead of what could very well be a confirmation fight. As a young attorney in prosecutor Kenneth Starr's office, he was the lead author of the salacious Starr Report calling for president Bill Clinton's impeachment, and represented George W. Bush in the Florida vote recount that awarded the 2000 election to Bush. It is imperative that judges adhere to the Constitution and resist judicial activism.
"For the last 12 years, he has served as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals with great distinction, authoring 300 opinions, which have been widely admired for their skill, insight and rigorous adherence to the law", Trump said as Kavanaugh stood nearby with his wife and their two daughters in the East Room of the White House.
Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, says it's "extremely disappointing" that some Democrats have made clear they'll oppose the nominee even before the president announces his choice. "We need them back on the side of justice".
McConnell and Trump were rewarded this year with a string of 5-4 decisions in which Gorsuch cast votes favorable to the president and the GOP.
A Maryland native whose mother was a public school teacher who went on to serve as a state judge in Maryland, Kavanaugh got his undergraduate and law degrees from Yale University. Pundits debate over whether this nomination could result in the encroachment of abortion rights. If approved by the Senate, he would become the fifth conservative justice on the nation's highest court. John Kennedy, R-La., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said Monday that he hopes to use that time to learn more about Kavanaugh's legal mind. Kavanaugh responded that if confirmed, he would "follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully".
The lawsuit also alleges that Cintron has not received a raise since 2010, when his salary was raised from $68,000 to $75,000. Lawyers for the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
