One of the world's most successful professional dog mushers is speaking out against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Mark Warner became the latest Democrat on Tuesday to signal his intention to oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Rather, if she votes against Kavanaugh, the GoFundMe campaign will refund all the donations to those who contributed.

But because these two senators are Republicans, activists are anxious that they will vote with their party to confirm Kavanaugh. "Judge Kavanaugh kept his cool this week and demonstrated the qualities that I look for in a judge or a Supreme Court justice - good character, good temperament, high intelligence and respect for the law".

Warner's announcement comes one day after both New Hampshire Democratic senators unveiled their opposition to Kavanaugh. If Collins votes in favor of Kavanaugh, however, the $1 million or more will be donated to the campaign of Collins' 2020 opponent.

Another Senate Democrat who voted for Gorsuch and is seeking reelection in 2018 is Indiana's Joe Donnelly.

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.

Of course, even though the full quote makes it clear that Kavanaugh is referring to the religious group's objection and using their terminology, Harris doubles down on her earlier claim that he used a "dog whistle" to refer to birth control generally. Although Obama won IN in 2008, the state is heavily Republican.
