If I had known who he was, I would have shaken his hand, talked to him, and expressed my sympathy. If she's not going to do that, and if she won't give thoughtful consideration to their concerns, they have the right to pledge their support to her opponent, both with their votes and with their money.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) took to Twitter to call on Democrats to condemn "attempts to bribe" Sen.
Kavanaugh was also asked about an incident during the hearing when he turned away from the father of shooting victim that approached him during a recess.
Kavanagh's explanation was part of a 263-page response late Wednesday to some 1,287 written questions from senators.
Judiciary Committee Democrats repeatedly pressed Kavanaugh on abortion rights, gay rights, health care, executive authority and the ongoing Russian Federation probe last week, but the often-contentious exchanges did not spur a critical group of centrist Democrats to commit to voting for or against the nominee.

From the very beginning, Kavanaugh's confirmation process has been denounced by Democrats and progressive groups as a "sham" orchestrated by Republicans to keep the public in the dark about crucial components of the judge's extreme right-wing record and to hide substantial evidence that Kavanaugh's previous testimony before the Senate does not hold up to close scrutiny.
Neither Indiana's Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp nor Florida's Bill Nelson posted any statements or tweets about the high court nominee during the confirmation hearings or in the days since. "They're talking about whether or not you can have health care, pre-existing conditions-these are things that can lead people to die". Despite those commitments, the letter said one member of the committee has released more than 40 documents without consent, referring to Booker. "We lack the documents".
In this case, that senator is Maine's Susan Collins, a centrist who is seen by many as something of a swing vote in highly partisan congressional fights, including the Kavanaugh nomination.
