Apparently Phil Bredesen is still looking for a lifeline on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. With Senate hearings over, Bredesen says he’s still reviewing the hearings.
Of course that has nothing to do with the fact that Bredesen’s Democrat base is demanding nothing but resistance to any nominee of President Trump. Or the fact that the man who recruited Bredesen, New York Democrat Chuck Schumer, has pleaded with Democrats to “Keep your powder dry. Don’t commit. Stay as neutral as you can, as long as you can.’
"Phil Bredesen isn’t even in the Senate yet, and he’s already at Chuck Schumer’s beck and call. If there’s any chance that he has any influence at all over whether a Trump nominee makes it to the Supreme Court, he will have one answer, and one answer quickly — NO. Just like Schumer told him.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
