Numbers Still Favor Kavanaugh's Confirmation to Supreme Court

In the closely divided senate, Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation hinges in part on the votes of two moderate Republican senators: Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine. During the hearings, he expressed significant respect for Roe v. Wade's status as precedent under the doctrine of stare decisis, as well as mixed signals on the judiciary's ability to declare rights not explicitly listed in the Constitution. Both Collins and Murkowski voted to confirm Gorsuch but have given noncommittal statements about Kavanaugh.

The Planned Parenthood ads going up on Wednesday include women from a focus group conducted of swing voters in ME explaining their concerns about Kavanaugh and why they believe Collins should oppose him. "Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent" and is being pushed by liberal activists nationwide, including gun-controller David Hogg.

In fact, this is a popular myth that's been long discredited.

The Crowdpac.com campaign to convince Collins to vote against Kavanaugh has raised $1,056,497 with 38,068 pledges as of Tuesday evening.

Laguens added that ME women "know that Kavanaugh would overturn Roe and chip away at access to safe, legal abortion if given the chance.Senator Collins needs to listen to the women of ME and continue to stand up for their most basic freedoms by opposing Brett Kavanaugh".

Florence takes aim at Carolinas
Hurricane Florence is set to make landfall along the North Carolina coast on Thursday as a major category 4 hurricane. It was the first time South Caroline has reversed its highways for an evacuation since Hurricane Floyd in 1999.

"This is the most consequential Supreme Court vacancy in a generation, yet it has been the least transparent confirmation process in recent history", Warner said. Most or all Republicans in the Senate will vote to confirm him; most or all Democrats will reject him.

Collins is referring to a large-scale crowdfunding effort by which liberals have raised about a million dollars to influence her against Kavanaugh.

Susan Collins is one of the senators who far-right wingnuts and Tea Party extremists like to call a RINO: Republican In Name Only. Donnelly, Manchin and Heitkamp voted to confirm the president's first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, last year. A MetroNews poll, for example, had Manchin ahead by 8%.

But the announcements came from Democrats who signaled skepticism about Kavanaugh when Trump nominated him in July and had been widely assumed to be "no" votes from the start. "Threats or other attempts to bully her will not play a factor in her decision making whatsoever".
