Democrats don't have the votes to block U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.Still, the battle may have changed the Democrats, who are being transformed by a new generation of politicians spoiling for a fight with Trump, even if it creates political challenges for some Democratic candidates in the November election."This vote is not going to age well," Fallon said. He is holding out hope that not only will Democrats reject Kavanaugh, but that two pivotal Republicans, Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, will join in to help stop the confirmation.The court fight might be unhelpful as some Democrats, including Heitkamp in North Dakota and Sen. Joe Manchin in West Virginia, try to appeal to the moderate Republicans and independents they need to win over.Before the hearings began, Schumer gathered Democrats for a weekend conference call to plot strategy.At a time when Democrats are churning as a party, they're also awakening to the political potency of judicial nominees, a longtime GOP priority.
