July 21: On Judge Kavanaugh, I'm reading his opinions. I'm scheduling a meeting with him. I'm going to meet with him personally, which Republicans refused to do when Judge Garland was nominated for the court. And then I'm going to watch the judiciary committee hearing. And after that hearing and after I have the opportunity to personally ask him about issues that I think are really important, I'll wait til after the hearing and make up my mind. I'll do it on the merits. (YouTube / PBS News Hour - first U.S. Senate debate in Virginia)

July 11: Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said that while many of his fellow Democrats have already said they will oppose the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, he has not yet made up his mind how he will vote on the Supreme Court nominee. On Wednesday morning, Kaine told reporters that he has a lot of concerns about Kavanaugh. He said he is particularly worried over the effect the judge could have on abortion rights and abolition of the Affordable Care Act, but Kaine insists he must do a lot of research before he decides how he will vote. 'My goal is to review the record with my staff, interview Judge Kavanaugh in my office. Possibly offer some of those ideas to the judiciary committee members who will be questioning him. Watch that hearing before making a final decision,' said Kaine[.] He says he would like to see the Senate wait until after the midterm elections to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination. (WSLS)

July 9: Here's what I'm wondering about the #SCOTUSpick: Will Judge Kavanaugh respect rulings to uphold the ACA? Will he safeguard ALL Americans' civil rights? Will he protect women's freedom to make their own reproductive health care decisions? Will he be independent of this President? (Twitter)
