Collins' support is crucial to Kavanaugh's nomination, as Republicans now hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate with the recent confirmation of Sen. That determination was made on August 30 by a unanimous decision, according to committee chair Paul Moxley, who is expected to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to deliver a statement on Friday.

"I have voted for Justice Sotomayor, and I've also voted for Justice Alito", she said, referring to justices at the opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. She also told reporters that Kavanaugh reassured her by saying he considers Roe v. Wade settled law, but in a 2003 email recently unearthed at his confirmation hearings he wrote he was "not sure" whether the case was settled law.

The emails within the documents show Kavanaugh identifying himself and a colleague as those who "generally favor effective security measures that are race-neutral".

Kavanaugh eventually said he couldn't think of any such conversations and would need to see a list of the firm's lawyers.

Last month, I asked Annie Clark, Collins' spokeswoman, how the senator might define such "hostility". "This dinner is only about the great opportunities ahead of us in this election this fall".

While Republican senators posed many questions on Kavanaugh's overall judicial philosophy, Democrats zeroed in on controversial issues, including gun ownership and abortion rights in the U.S.

Pittsburgh running back James Conner got the first touchdown of the game to give the Steelers an early 7-0 lead. In a pretty wild contest , the Steelers earned a tie with the Cleveland Browns after a scoreless overtime.

"I am right now, before your process is finished, I am going to release the email about racial profiling, and I understand the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate", the New Jersey Democrat said, later adding that he was "knowingly violating the rules".

"I believe that the Democratic Party wants to have the Mueller investigation hanging over President Trump's head", observes Abe Hamilton, general counsel for the American Family Association and a former assistant district attorney.

Many are unconvinced. Earlier this month, Francis Boyle, a law professor at the University of IL, told the Guardian he thought "Kavanaugh was put on there to ensure Roe is overturned".

More than a dozen cases involving abortion now are queued up at the Supreme Court's doorstep - any one of which could spell the beginning of the end for Roe. v. Wade. He defended his dissenting opinion a year ago in the case of a pregnant immigrant teen in federal custody.

Kavanaugh had served as Bush's staff secretary and his work in the White House has figured in the hearing. "Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent" and is being pushed by liberal activists nationwide, including gun-controller David Hogg.
