Progressive group launches ads in key voting states to block Kavanaugh

Progressive group launches ads in key voting states to block Kavanaugh

Sixty-four percent of Americans want Roe v. Wade to stand while 28 percent said they would like to see it overturned, a Gallup Poll, which was released Thursday, indicated.

The Cincinnati Enquirer Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh donated $250 to now-gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray's unsuccessful bid for state attorney general in 1998.

Robert Bork, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to the Supreme Court in 1987, came under intense scrutiny by Democrats who mined his legal writings for evidence of his conservative leanings.

"In our view, the judge has been one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers", they said, calling him a "dedicated mentor" to all his law clerks.

Wert said another close election is expected in November against Republican nominee Mike Braun, which Wert said might prompt Donnelly to cast a wider net, appealing to a larger, more conservative group of voters. In the case, Kavanaugh dissented on the court's ruling to allow an undocumented pregnant teenager to seek an abortion. Yet, he didn't reject Trump's nomination, as a strict constructionist and man of honor should have.

The responses to the Gallup poll were mostly divided along party lines.

The latter is more likely; the former more desirable.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen.

The poll, released Thursday, found that 64 percent of Americans support the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the US, and they would not like to see it overturned.

President Donald Trump announced Kavanaugh on Monday as his pick to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, praising his "impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law".
