Status of the Senate
These Senators could be the deciding vote that stops Kavanaugh. Let them hear your voice on what’s at stake with a Trump Court.
Senator Susan Collins
Senator Collins is considered the most moderate Republican in the Senate. She supports reproductive rights and has said she will not vote for a Supreme Court candidate who "demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade." Last summer, she cast one of the deciding votes that saved the Affordable Care Act. She wants to hear personal stories from her constituents.
Senator Donnelly is a Democrat from Indiana and is up for reelection this year. Sen. Donnelly is anti-abortion and voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch last year, but he has also voted in favor of funding Planned Parenthood. He also strongly supports the Affordable Care Act's protections for people with pre-existing conditions, which is currently facing a lawsuit and could be gutted if Kavanaugh is confirmed.
Senator Murkowski is a Republican from Alaska who also cast a deciding vote to save the ACA last summer. An independent thinker, Murkowski won her Senate race in a write-in campaign after losing the Republican primary to a Tea Party candidate. She has a history of voting for women's rights, healthcare access, and reproductive rights.
Sen. Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, is up for reelection. Sen. Manchin has voted for some of Trump's most controversial nominees, but his vote on Kavanaugh will come down to what he hears from constituents. His biggest concern is protecting the ACA and Medicaid, which many West Virginians rely on. Manchin is personally anti-abortion but supports funding for Planned Parenthood. He is also a staunch advocate for workers' rights.
Senator Heitkamp is a Democrat from deep red North Dakota and is up for reelection this November. She supports reproductive rights and stood strong with the Democratic caucus to save the ACA and oppose the tax plan. Sen. Heitkamp supported the nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch, but is very concerned about protecting Roe and coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
Senator Corker is an anti-abortion Republican from Tennessee who is retiring this year. He has been consistently and vocally critical of the Trump Administration's relationship with Russia, and steadfastly supports the Mueller investigation moving forward unhindered. Corker may have some reservations about Kavanaugh, who does not believe sitting Presidents should be investigated.
Senator Flake is a retiring anti-abortion Republican from Arizona. He has been an outspoken critic of Trump, and there are speculations he is considering challenging Trump in 2020. He has said Republicans need to speak out against Trump's handling of the Russia Investigation, hinting that he may take issue with Kavanaugh's position in favor of expanded Presidential power and immunity from prosecution.
Sen. Jon Tester is a Democrat from Montana and is up for reelection this November. Sen. Tester is a strong advocate of worker's rights, the protection of public lands, and reproductive rights. Kavanaugh's concerning record of favoring corporate interests to the detriment of working people and the environment,as well as the risk to Roe, is concerning to Sen. Tester. He voted against the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch.
