"There is no one in America more qualified for this position, or more deserving", the president said of Kavanaugh during Monday night's prime-time television announcement from the White House East Room. He previously served for five years in the White House under former US president George W. Bush.

While conservatives have so far made a decision to focus on Democratic senators, liberals have crafted a divided strategy for pressuring both Democrats and Republicans.

So far, Democrats are uniting behind a strategy to turn the confirmation fight into a referendum on conservatives' efforts to undo abortion access, chip away at health care protections under the Affordable Care Act and protect Trump from Mueller. He described how his mother was a trailblazer who went to law school, became a prosecutor and then a trial judge. He has also taught at Yale Law School-from which he graduated-as well as Harvard and Georgetown.

Bream was in front of the building to cover the reaction to President Donald Trump's announcement of his nomination to the Supreme Court Monday.

Republicans have 51 votes in the Senate and need 50 votes to confirm Trump's nominee, assuming Vice President Mike Pence votes with them to break a tie.

Bream said she was forced to scrap the live show, planned to take place at the steps of the Supreme Court, due to the aggressive protesters mobbing the streets.

At the least, the government said, it should have a chance to place the girl with a family member or willing sponsor in the US, saying they would be best able to help her think through such a momentous decision.

The Democrats are now pressuring Republicans who support access to abortion services to oppose the nomination.

Kennedy, who is 81, had been nominated for the court by President Ronald Reagan in 1987. The group's spending, which is focused on Democratic senators, will probably climb over the coming months to match the $10 million spent to support Justice Neil Gorsuch's nomination previous year.
