Yankees' Cashman, Arizona Cardinals owner back Trump's Supreme Court pick

The latest political battlegound in the US Senate is soon set to become Donald Trump's choice for Supreme Court judge.

Demand Justice, which was already running ads on social media in early June attacking Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees, is launching a $5 million radio, television, digital and voter mobilization campaign in Alaska and ME, home to two moderate Republican senators who will be key votes in the coming confirmation process: Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. "He is a man of high character, high intelligence, excellence and independence".

CNN reporters Stephen Collinson, Jeremy Diamond and Jeff Zeleny dubbed the announcement of President Trump's Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh as a "scripted end to Trump's reality show". "I look forward to meeting with him in the coming weeks as he goes through a fair and thorough evaluation process". "I will tell each senator that I revere the Constitution", he said. "I'll take anyone of them".

In a wider sense, his nominee will also represent a triumph for conservatism and the organized effort to promote vetted conservative judges that offered McConnell a pipeline of candidates for lower courts and now is reaching the ultimate prize - a solid Supreme Court majority. "Further, given the fact that Donald Trump stated repeatedly during the campaign that any nominee of his would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, I have no doubt that is exactly what Brett Kavanaugh will do", Sanders said.

"We'll hear all kinds of fantastic stories about the pain and suffering that this perfectly qualified, widely respected judge will somehow unleash on America if we confirm him to the court", McConnell said. But if this couldn't be done without amending the U.S. Constitution, there are some alternatives.

And imagine this: Three of the justices at the time, including the chief justice, had been nominated to the court by the same Republican president whose fate their votes sealed. Barrett is a favorite of the base for her conservative religious views while Hardiman was the runner-up to the President's first Supreme Court pick, Justice Neil Gorsuch.

The majority of the D.C. Circuit panel disagreed with that reasoning, noting that the Supreme Court had ruled in a 1984 case that undocumented workers were indeed employees for the purposes of collective bargaining law.

Republicans have reacted positively to Trump's pick, but McConnell has little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard.

Johnson's resignation was more perilous for May given his seniority in government. If she refuses to change course, she could face a leadership challenge.

"He is a brilliant jurist, with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time", Trump said in his prime-time televised White House announcement Monday.

In his dissent, Kavanaugh argued that undocumented workers were no longer employees under the law due to the 1986 law passed by Congress. The organization wants someone who will "interpret the law as written and not legislate from the bench", Riggs added.

"The White House had invited red-state Democratic senators to the party - twisting the knife since Trump's selection of the mild-mannered Kavanaugh may prove tough to oppose for those up for re-election in states where Trump won big in 2016".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that by selecting Kavanaugh, Trump "has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block". He would threaten women's rights, workers' rights, civil rights and voting rights for generations to come, even as wealthy corporations and polluters gained "yet another powerful protector", he said. Other aspects of the Trump administration have been haphazard and unpredictable, but on judges, we have gotten exactly what Trump said we would.

Kavanaugh has understood the employer's perspective in plenty of cases beyond Agri Processor.

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a staunch conservative.
