Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that Senate Democrats can successfully orchestrate the rejection of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “if they can convince the American people that his confirmation will lead to the undoing of abortion rights and the Affordable Care Act by the Supreme Court,” Politico reports.
Said Schumer: “Let me say this. I believe if we can prove to the American people, which I believe is truly the case, that this nominee will lead to a court that repeals women’s reproductive freedom, repeals ACA with its protections for pre-existing conditions, we will get a majority of the Senate to vote for it.”
He added: “Obviously, even if we had every Democrat, we need two Republicans. But if we can make that case, we will get a majority.”
