Just hours after his dramatic White House East Room announcement as Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was on Capitol Hill Tuesday beginning the traditional process of paying courtesy calls on the senators who will vote on his confirmation.
Some conservatives feared the pro-abortion, moderate Republican would vote against President Donald Trump's nominee to protect Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark ruling that legalized abortion.
"I think a thing that concerns me from some of his writings that the president shouldn't be distracted by criminal law or investigations of the president", Leahy said. "What we'd like to see is a few open minds about this extraordinary talent".
The meeting came at nearly the same time that Senate Democrats held a rally against Kavanaugh in front of the Supreme Court, an event led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will hold Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing in the coming weeks.
"We'll try to do what we can to accommodate everybody's interests", said the Iowa Republican. McConnell has a 51-49 Senate majority, narrowed further by the absence of ailing Sen.
Like the other eight justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, spending his undergraduate and law school years at Yale.
Kavanaugh, for his part, has only ruled on one abortion case in his 12 years as a federal judge.
McConnell addressed recent protests he's encountered over immigration policies of the Trump administration.
Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South.
The stakes are high.
NBC News reported that the Trump team was in talks with Kennedy about his replacement for months and he only felt comfortable retiring after he "received assurance that it would be Kavanaugh", per NBC reporter Geoff Bennett.

"It is not an exaggeration to say that we would not be the professors, prosecutors, public officials, and appellate advocates we are today without his enthusiastic encouragement and unwavering support", they wrote.
Those protesting are calling on Florida Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio to reject the nomination.
This time, it was the 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore.
"His public record is a very deep mine that has to be explored", said Sen.
May's proposals for a "common rulebook" on goods "hands control of large swathes of our economy to the EU", he said . Tory Brexiteers say the proposals agreed at Friday's meeting of the Cabinet at Chequers are "Brexit in name only".
Trump's order bans travel to the US from the nations of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen, North Korea and Venezuela. INSKEEP: Total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States is the way the president phrased it then.
Indeed, Argentinian journalist Fernando Niembro has even accused the captain of taking over squad selection duties from Sampaoli. The standout last-16 tie on paper pits France against Messi and Argentina, two teams who laboured through the group stage.
It added that it "remains on track to increase its production capacity to 3.5 million (barrels per day) by the end of 2018". The president stressed that no power in history has been able to make the Iranian nation give in to illogical demands.
But the states say his order is riddled with caveats and fails to reunite parents and children who have already been torn apart. There were moments from Trump's visits that seemed to indicate she was there not to change the status quo, but to applaud it.

Saudi Arabia's objective, revealed at the OPEC meeting in June, has been to stabilise production and prices around current levels. US tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese imports took effect as a deadline passed on Friday and Beijing has vowed to respond in kind.
