Trump has also been consulting with lawmakers including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who has expressed reservations about Kavanaughs candidacy, according to a person familiar with the call.

Kavanaugh and Hardiman concern me also.
Kavanaugh’s a Bushbot, I’d be weary too.
In the end, Rand Paul is just expressing his personal concerns, but he’ll ultimately vote for him should President Trump pick him, as Paul did with Gina Haspel despite all the initial noise from him about her.
If it were up to Rand Paul, the nominee would at least be a truly strict textualist and originalist.
Rand Paul should team up with Chuck Schumer and go for Merrick Garland. It’s only fair.
Paul is just one more puffed up ass who thinks he is or ought to be president. There only around 535 of them on Capital Hill alone, in addition to countless judges across the nation.
He wants something............
with all the gnashing of teeth about collins, I considered her a much surer thing than ol’ rand the attention whore.
The little curly-haired gayboy is always attention seeking.
Kavanaugh dedicated his time plating food for Catholic Carities- they are the flagship standard for refugee platforming in the USA. We need the other last name starts with K or the brown dude
Nobody knows what we will get with any candidate on the list. Some Justices change after taking the bench. The hearings are a joke, a grandstand for congress critters. Nothing is learned unless a nominee makes an unusual serious error.
The coming nominee will be superior to any Hillary nominee, and that’s what you can take to the bank.
So—Republicans are so confident of increasing their majority in the Senate that they’re comfortable insulting PDJT?
And everyone should be damned glad he doesn’t want a possible david souter on the bench.
How quickly does he need to appoint someone? He should take more time.
And his Obamacare ruling set the path for the Supreme Court’s ultimate ruling.
And he clerked for Kennedy, which suggests he may be a Kennedy type. Barrett, for example, clerked for Scalia.
Casting a vote before being given the choice is as ignorent as demanding a judge rule on a case that has not been presented.
And Rand is right about that. I suspect that if the nominee is not an originalist but more a Kennedy type, he or she might lose Cruz and Lee also.
Onetime Senator Rudy Boschwitz of Minnesota was German-born, and his colleague Sam Hayakawa was Japanese born. Boschwtz once said that he and Hayakawa were the only ones in Congress who didn’t get up in the morning, look in the mirror, and say, “Now, that would be a fine president!”
Most of the names on the list are apparently textualists and origninalists. Kavanaugh is one of the two on the long list about whom I’m dubious on that point. (Hardiman is the other.)
He was probably right too.
I liked Hayakawa, what I knew of him at any rate.
