Congrats are in order for federal judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, as President Donald Trump has selected him as his Supreme Court Justice nominee on July 9. Before he was nominated to the D.C. circuit by George W. Bush, he was the former president's staff secretary and worked for Bush during the 2000 Florida vote recount.
Red state Democrats also kept an open mind on Tuesday.
"Tonight's announcement is only a first step", Jones posted on Twitter Monday night.
He says, "Because President Trump has said repeatedly that he would nominate judges to overturn the ACA, the Supreme Court vacancy is only further putting health care front and center, raising the stakes for maintaining these vital health care protections". "I do not apply an ideological test to their personal views".
Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate, so they can approve Trump's nominee without any Democratic support as long as they don't lose more than one vote.
Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer vowed an all-out battle against Kavanaugh, but senators in his party can not block Kavanaugh's confirmation if no Republicans break ranks.
The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) has yet to make a public statement regarding its stance on Kavanaugh's nomination.
"The administration's going to work very closely with members of the [Judiciary] Committee and members of the Senate to make Judge Kavanaugh available", Pence said.

France v Belgium 10 July 2018

In the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Robert Aderholt - the dean of Alabama congressmen in the lower chamber - urged the Senate to quickly confirm Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh's nomination has already sparked controversy among Democrats - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised Monday evening to fight the nomination "with everything I have" during the nomination process. If she took the bait, then Democrats would have it in their power to stop the judge's confirmation by their own efforts, and that might justify endangering a Democratic senator or two if it meant forcing Trump to appoint a different kind of SCOTUS justice.
Leo said that for Trump, the organizations who helped brainstorm names of potential justices were not important, and instead the key is that the judge chosen will "interpret the Constitution the way it is written".
Richard Primus, the Theodore J. St. Antoine Collegiate Professor of Law at the University of MI, said absent an unexpected change in the composition of the Senate or a scandal, it's likely Kavanaugh will be confirmed despite any Democratic opposition.
Similar sentiments were shared by Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Saks. I am inclined to take him at his word that he would find a nominee who meets his criteria - but his standards and mine are vastly different on these topics.
More recently, in a case involving a pregnant 17-year-old in immigration custody in Texas, Kavanaugh dissented from a court ruling that ordered the girl be released from detention to obtain an abortion. "He's someone that has the character, the background, the career and the record that gave President Trump the confidence to know that when he appointed Judge Kavanaugh. he would be another Constitutional conservative". It is imperative that judges adhere to the Constitution and resist judicial activism.
Both sides will be poring over Kavanaugh's some 300 legal opinions in his 12 years as a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit, not to mention his legal articles and speaking engagements.
