As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) said on Thursday that she will oppose Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“The process has been bad … I will be voting ‘no’ on Judge Kavanaugh,” Heitkamp told North Dakota radio station, WDAY.
Heitkamp, who is running for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, has been tightlipped about her thinking on Kavanaugh, declining to speak with reporters on Wednesday or Thursday.
The article goes on to state the following:
The decision marks a shift for Heitkamp, who was one of three Democrats to support Gorsuch. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) has announced his opposition to Kavanaugh, while Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) remains undecided.
Republicans likely don’t need Heitkamp to ultimately get Kavanaugh confirmed. They have a 51-seat majority, meaning they can lose one GOP senator before they need help from Democrats.
