"Just as I did when Merrick Garland and Neil Gorsuch were nominated", Manchin noted, "I will evaluate Judge Kavanaugh's record, legal qualifications, judicial philosophy and particularly, his views on healthcare". The longtime Kentucky lawmaker reportedly preferred Kethledge and Hardiman over Kavanaugh, believing the former two would be easier to pass through an already tight count in the Senate, according to The Times on Saturday.

Cory Booker (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala D. Harris (Calif.) - and Sen. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is an appellate judge from Maryland who has ruled against Obamacare and abortion rights in the past.

"His nomination should be a non-starter for every member of the Senate concerned about the integrity of the special counsel's investigation and anxious about the Court undermining the rights of women to make their own medical decisions; civil rights; the rights of Americans to quality, affordable healthcare; voting rights; the rights of workers to organize for better wages and working conditions; and more", Booker said in a statement.
