Sen. Lindsey Graham Says Red State Dems Should Support SCOTUS Pick

Sen. Lindsey Graham Says Red State Dems Should Support SCOTUS Pick

Graham said. "So red-state Democrats are going to have a very hard decision, and I hope every Republican will rally around these picks, because they're all outstanding". "I think it's a bit of a scare tactic and rank speculation more than anything else". "It's, well let's just say it's the four people".

NBC, which only has American Ninja Warrior's Minneapolis qualifiers booked for this Monday, has yet to announce any tweaks to its line-up, while Fox as has been the case this summer has a disposable 9-1-1 rerun airing at 9 pm.

He said he believes that any of the four candidates on the short list will dismantle Roe v. Wade and other hard-fought rights. "I was a law clerk to [former Justice Harry Blackmun]".

Trump during the campaign pledged to pick justices who would reject 45 years of precedent and overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 controversial decision legalizing abortion.

"I think of the four people, I have it down to three or two".

Outside adviser Leonard Leo, now on leave from the Federalist Society, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that this kind of jockeying is standard, noting that "every potential nominee before announcement gets concerns expressed about them by people who might ultimately support them".

"How do you respond to that argument?"

The conservative, pro-life activist who has President Trump's ear as he decides on filling a Supreme Court vacancy predicted the nominee would be confirmed before the mid-term elections but sidestepped a question about whether the candidate would oppose Roe v. Wade. Senate rules now requires only a majority of 51 votes to advance a Supreme Court nomination.

Later, in Blumenthal's appearance on "This Week", the senator pushed back on this point.

"It's far from "a red herring" when Rudy Giuliani is saying [Trump] will not be interviewed - the president will refuse to talk to Robert Mueller or his team unless he is given evidence of a crime", Blumenthal said.

"They want protections for millions of Americans against preexisting conditions to be sustained". "They want. voting rights and gay rights and other rights to be not only preserved, but also enhanced".
