Alaska's Sen. Sullivan backs Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

Sixty-four percent of Americans want Roe v. Wade to stand while 28 percent said they would like to see it overturned, a Gallup Poll, which was released Thursday, indicated. Mitch McConnell refused to give Garland a hearing, claiming that the American people should have a voice in who would confirm the next Supreme Court justice. "If we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that will happen".

Kavanaugh, for his part, has only ruled on one abortion case in his 12 years as a federal judge.

Gerard also objected to Kavanaugh because he would "deny women their right to abortion after he tried - ultimately unsuccessfully - to prevent an undocumented minor who was in government custody from obtaining the procedure".

He pointed to the "outlandish" claim, debunked by a recent Washington Post fact check, that Judge Kavanaugh argued in a 2009 article that a sitting president can not be indicted. Rob Portman (R-OH) talk about Kavanaugh's qualifications before a meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill July 11, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The United Steelworkers union has issued a statement urging the U.S. Senate to deny confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
