Warner Announces Intention to Vote Against Kavanaugh

Kamala Harris pushes deceptively edited video to smear Brett Kavanaugh. But here’s the truth Sen. Kamala Harris pushed a deceptively edited video about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

"Reject President Trump's Supreme Court Pick!" has raised close to $900,000. Susan Collins to oppose the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

And Kavanaugh, given the slight majority Republicans presently hold in the Senate, will most likely be confirmed.

The "Be A Hero" campaign - coordinated by national health activist Ady Barkan, and liberal groups Mainers for Accountable Leadership and the Maine People's Alliance - asks people to donate at least $20.20 to a future Collins opponent if she votes "yes" on Kavanaugh.

Along with Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Senator Collins' vote could change the outcome of this critical legislation.

So a group of liberal activists in ME created an unusual crowdfunding campaign that encapsulated both of these emotions: they raised money in the form of pledges that they said they would give to whoever chose to challenge Collins in 2020 if she voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"I look forward to voting for him", Tennessee Republican Lamar Alexander said in a statement late last week. "Senator Collins will make up her mind based on the merits of the nomination. Extortion will not work on Senator Collins", Annie Clark says.

In a tweet responding to her own tweet three days earlier, Harris finally shared Kavanaugh's full quote on a religious group's objection to providing what it called abortion-inducing drugs to its employees. "If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race.... this effort will not influence my vote at all". A MetroNews poll, for example, had Manchin ahead by 8%.

That doesn't sound like someone who is impressed by the Democrats' disgusting antics.

All are running for re-election in states Trump won in 2016 and are caught between pressure from within their party to oppose Kavanaugh and a desire not to anger and mobilize conservative voters in their home states ahead of the November elections. And Kavanaugh's opponents are fearful that Donnelly will vote for Kavanaugh if he fears that a vote against Kavanaugh could endanger his lead.

Potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Sen.

"I always wait until after the hearings are complete before making a decision, and I'll do so in this case as well", she said.
