The question may sound aggressive, but I'm genuinely curious. In Arkansas' 2nd District, Democrats have a strong nominee in Rep. Clarke Tucker and though the seat is labeled as "likely Republican", signs indicate that Tucker could still score an upset. Was it, as your official website suggests, to do what is best "for West Virginia and the nation?" It's clear that partisanship is plaguing the American political process. "With African-Americans, we haven't been able to make much headway".
The addition of 15 federal judges just days after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was seen as another win for the GOP with the November midterms on the horizon. Removal of a Supreme Court justice is nearly unthinkable - it would require 67 votes in the Senate, meaning it would be a massive bipartisan effort over the most polarizing issue there is. Bork, a constitutional originalist, was nominated by Ronald Reagan following the retirement of Justice Lewis Powell in 1987.
So widespread discontent with the new justice - likely to be a swing vote on many high-profile Supreme Court cases - will serve to erode the court's authority and weaken faith in American institutions. And the fact that he did that is the reason he is on the court. However, Bork's longstanding view that the Constitution does not contain a fundamental right to privacy galvanized pro-choice Americans to protect Roe v. Wade. That led to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY making a deal with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to confirm the judges and allow for a recess, in order for candidates up for re-election to hit the campaign trail, Politico reported. He went to a trial in the Senate, but he was actually acquitted, so he remained on the court. Merrick Garland's failed nomination at the hands of a Republican majority Senate in 2016 is an excellent example of this partisanship.
Perceptions of men, women, and the #MeToo movement have been affected by the conflict over the nomination and confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. "They want more. And I'm afraid this is only Phase One of the meltdown". His strongly approve v. strongly disapprove measurement is now down to -1 - 38 percent to 39 percent - and these represent his best polling numbers since March of previous year. Joe Manchin for voting to confirm Kavanaugh, but the suggestion by some that Democrats shouldn't vote for him next month is insane.
Manchin, however, is not the only strategic voter.
Bruce, a Washington Times columnist, said, "I think Susan Rice should run". This video is longer and more raw, and showcases the left-wing media's desperate attempts to deny the obvious.
Collins cited the lack of protections for those with pre-existing conditions in a statement explaining her vote.
"The biggest challenge is the separating of what's happening in Washington, D.C. from Washington state", she said. After ceding two of the toss-ups to Republicans since the Kavanaugh circus a few weeks ago, RCP has now given the GOP one more.
This same infectious, polarized attitude permeated Kavanaugh's hearings in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
And yes, I say that recognizing how hypocritical it is for Trump and Republicans in Congress to complain about Democratic incivility. I get that Democrats are hoping their voters will be motivated next month. "I believe all of you".
As the confirmation vote neared, Bredesen said he would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh.
In 1987, Reagan nominated Robert Bork to replace the seat vacated by Judge Lewis F. Powell Jr. who became an Associate Justice after his nomination by former-President Richard Nixon. She has been on the staff since first year. She is now a Web Editor, Design Editor and Training Coordinator. She is taller than Hannah Catlin.
