New Yorkers react to Kavanaugh pick

"And I will say, I'm a little - I'm a little annoyed that some of my colleagues, even before the president laid down Judge Kavanaugh's name, had already determined that they were going to vote against whomever", Murkowski said.

On Tuesday's "PBS NewsHour", Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) stated, "I don't think anybody is going to overturn Roe v. Wade". "But, come September, New Yorkers will decide if they want elected officials who follow or lead at the helm of our state's government".

For the second day in a row, Gov. Andrew Cuomo held rallies criticizing President Donald Trump's choice for the U.S. Supreme Court and urging action on a measure that would protect the right to choose abortion in NY. In the New York Legislature, Democrats enjoy an overwhelming 104-41 Assembly majority, but a razor-thin 32-31 Senate majority (the Senate now has a Republican majority leader due to a power-sharing agreement between the Independent Democratic Conference and Senate Republicans). Cuomo's scaremongering is an ironic reminder to blue-staters that not only would nothing change in their backyards if Roe were dumped, the new legal regime that replaces it in the state legislature might be more liberal than what Roe has provided them.

"We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there", Gov. Cuomo said.

The campaign includes a new digital ad "Vote for Roe or We'll Vote You Out", as well as robust six figure TV ad buy championing what the governor said is his "record on women's rights".

Williams on Tuesday participated in a rally in Union Square in lower Manhattan calling urging New York State legislators to advance reproductive justice measures, such as codifying Roe v. Wade and passing the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act. "So there is a lot to go through", she said. Republicans hold a 51-vote majority, and Sen.

The vice president also briefly discussed foreign affairs ahead of this week's key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where President Trump is expected to demand US allies contribute more funding for their own national defense.
