Numbers Still Favor Kavanaugh's Confirmation to Supreme Court

Since pretty much every other Republican is guaranteed to vote to confirm Kavanaugh, Collins' and Murkowski's constituents have been putting extreme pressure on them to vote no.

The spotlight on Collins and Sen. Kavanaugh's testimony did not appear to have cost him any support among Republicans, nor has it prodded two moderates in the caucus to declare how they will vote.

"It's unnecessary and dilatory, especially when many have already chose to vote against Judge Kavanaugh", Grassley said in a statement.

Three Senate Democrats voted to confirm Gorsuch last year, and one of them was West Virginia's Joe Manchin-who is up for reelection this year.

But Kavanaugh told senators - as part of more than 250 pages of written responses to follow up questions from lawmakers - that he didn't recognize Guttenberg. "Threats or other attempts to bully her will not play a factor in her decision making whatsoever".

As of writing this, the campaign has raised about $1.2 million from people who don't want to see Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

Activists in ME have raised more than $1 million dollars in an crowdfunded effort to get Sen. Members of the group have met with Collins over the past 18 months on issues such as protecting the state's young immigrants known as Dreamers. "They're talking about whether or not you can have health care, pre-existing conditions-these are things that can lead people to die".

The campaign is just one of many created to influence Collins' vote on Kavanaugh, who opponents say could be the fifth vote in a majority Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The crowdfunding campaign threatens to fund Collins' future opponent if she refuses to vote "no" on Kavanaugh.

Sen. Collins vows she won't be persuaded by the campaign to impact her vote, amid an ongoing crowdfunding scheme against her, TheBlaze reported on Tuesday.

The website goes on to threaten that if she votes in favor of his nomination, "We will get you out of office".

"I would have listened to him", the judge added. She contrasted that with the almost $2.8 million Collins' campaign received in her 2014 election from various political action committees. His office said the senator also took into account, "the opinions of thousands of ME people who have written and called into his office or approached the Senator personally".

"We won't let it stifle us". It would go back to voters or it would go to her Democratic opponent. "Despite the endless complaints from critics, the Committee has received more material regarding Judge Kavanaugh's nomination than any nominee in history - by a wide margin", said White House Spokesman Raj Shah. The stakes were on display throughout the confirmation hearings last week, with about 70 people arrested on the hearing's first day and charged with disorderly conduct.
