Red-state Democrats turn down White House invitation to Supreme Court announcement

Red-state Democrats turn down White House invitation to Supreme Court announcement”

Manchin sent his regrets via tweet, saying that while he was grateful for the White House invitation, he looks forward to meeting Trump's nominee "in a setting where we can discuss his or her experience, judicial philosophy & perspective on access to healthcare for [West Virginians] with pre-existing conditions". "It's about what country the United States of America is going to chart as its course in the future on this Supreme Court". He was in the running a year ago for the Supreme Court seat left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

On the flip side, if the Republicans suggest they will approve of the nominee, it's hard to see how the nomination fails - and it gives the Democrats even more cover to buck their party and also support Trump's pick.

Democrats girded for a fight as Trump kept up the suspense surrounding his shortlist of four possibles, all with solid right-wing credentials, ahead of the televised announcement to be made in prime time from the White House. If a Democratic senator votes yes, that would allow Republicans to tout Trump's nominee as bipartisan.

John Roberts now serves as the chief White House correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC).

But both senators voted to confirm Gorsuch, who would be expected by conservative activists to vote to return decisions about abortions to the states. It will feature cable and digital advertising in states including Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia. The appellate court judge in Washington has a "slight" advantage, John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation, who helped shape Trump's list of possible justices, said Sunday on Fox News. I'm open to voting no.

Bob Salera, a campaign spokesman for Senate Republicans, said Casey has "given up any pretense of being a moderate voice" by opposing Trump's nominee sight unseen. We don't know who the nominee is going to be yet", Jones told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union.

"Certainly, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Barrett have a lot of name recognition among supporters of the president, and I think that ultimately, when people like them are nominated, you'll see a lot of folks line up", he said.

Stephanopoulos also asked Leo about an argument by some Democrats, including Blumenthal, that no new justice should be appointed until after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is finished because it would be improper for the president to nominate someone who may have jurisdiction over the probe.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says a weekend move by the Trump administration to undercut the Affordable Care Act is another reason for senators to closely scrutinize the president's Supreme Court nominee. The selection has been described in the national media as monumental in cementing a conservative majority on the Supreme Court for a generation. He said Sunday that he hoped to have made a decision by noon Monday.
