ManyDemocrats fear that Kavanaugh's conservative credentials - in a bench that is now tied 4-4 between liberal and conservative justices- will tilt the court right for the foreseeable future, allowing a rewriting of everything from hard won rights on abortion to same-sex marriage.
Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law organization, said it opposes Kavanaugh's nomination because "his overly restrictive approach to agency authority, and limited view of the public's right to access the courts, could jeopardize the ability of federal agencies to carry out their vital missions and threaten the American public's access to justice".
"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.

Kavanaugh's paper trail is one reason that McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, advised President Donald Trump to consider other nominees who could be confirmed more quickly, ensuring the final votes occur ahead of the November midterm elections, when control of Congress will be at stake.
The AFL-CIO labor federation and several unions came out strongly against Kavanaugh's nomination. Others have seen an even deeper ulterior motive in the choice of a man who is seen as a Bush loyalist, a fact that should have put off Trump: Kavanaugh sees the U.S. presidency as such a unique and challenging job that he believes the White House occupant should be shielded from indictment, prosecution, or interrogation while in office.
