"I think immigration is going to be dominating. and [the] economy and those kinds of things will sort of reset".

Roughly 25.6 million people tuned-in to major broadcast and TV news networks Monday evening to watch Mr. Trump nominate Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy - about 21 percent fewer than the almost 33 million who watched live previous year when the president picked Neil Gorsuch to replace late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, AdWeek first reported.

Trump picked U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to replace Kennedy, 81, setting up a fight with a divided Senate. But for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - whose primary goal is to lock in all 50 present Republicans - Collins and Murkowski certainly haven't raised any significant red flags yet.

"Tomorrow I begin meeting with members of the Senate", he said, "If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case".

"Anyone who doubts Kavanaugh's bona fides should keep in mind: this president has an exceptional track record on the judiciary", says FRC's Tony Perkins.

Kavanaugh's hundreds of judicial opinions show his commitment to careful, honest, detached interpretation of the Constitution and laws of the United States.

Judge Kavanaugh seems to have a pretty long paper trail-does that mean we can more confidently infer his positions? But barring some previously unreported damning information on Kavanaugh coming out, President Trump's nominee will be confirmed, and should be.
