Sen. King says he'll vote no on Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during his is Senate Judiciary committee confirmation hearing on Sept. 6

Lisa Murkowski. Confirming a Supreme Court nominee takes just 51 votes and Republicans now hold 51 seats. Many fear that, if confirmed, Kavanaugh would work to overturn the established court case. If she votes yes, however, all of the money - which, on Tuesday, officially stretched into excess of $1 million - will be donated to the campaign of Collins' future 2020 opponent.

Here are five US senators who could either make or break Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The people of ME are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins", the campaign wrote.

In hopes of pressuring Collins to vote "no", pro-abortion activists have sent her an estimated 3,000 coat hanger since July, TIME reports. Susan Collins on Wednesday from liberal protesters pushing the the ME senator to vote against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Maine's People's Alliance has banded together with the Mainers for Accountable Leadership and Ady Barkan, a dying father who has campaigned for healthcare reform, to ask Collins, a Republican senator from Maine, to vote no on Kavanaugh.

Kulsoom Nawaz: Ex-Pakistan PM's wife dies in London
The three-time first lady was diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer that affects the immune system, in August past year . Referring to her mother, Maryam Nawaz had said that she had dauntlessly challenged a usurper when "most men did not".

"Your card will only be charged if Collins votes for Kavanaugh's confirmation, " the listing noted. And Kavanaugh is so anti-choice that he even refers to birth control as "abortion-inducing drugs". Angus King (I-Maine) ― who has indicated that he'll vote against Kavanaugh.

The latter point stems from allegations Collins made to The Wall Street Journal that someone had left a voicemail with one of her state offices in which "they actually threatened to rape one of my young female staffers". A MetroNews poll, for example, had Manchin ahead by 8%. Otherwise, the legal issues are academic, but the political damage from this ill-advised bullying campaign is likely to help Kavanaugh a lot more than these groups could have ever hurt him.

Brian Fallon, the executive director and founder of Demand Justice, a liberal advocacy group, said his strategy is to increase pressure on Democrats to announce opposition to Kavanaugh in order to push Collins and Sen. Although Obama won IN in 2008, the state is heavily Republican. And Kavanaugh's opponents are fearful that Donnelly will vote for Kavanaugh if he fears that a vote against Kavanaugh could endanger his lead.

Democrats accused Republicans of seeking to ram the confirmation through without a thorough vetting before the November midterm elections. The centrist Heitkamp won by only 1% in 2012, and in 2018, she is in a very close race with Republican nominee Kevin Cramer-who is painting himself as reliably pro-Trump in the campaign. "Threats or other attempts to bully her will not play a factor in her decision making whatsoever".
