He doesn’t have to. He has a list of vetted candidates and I’m sure they wouldn’t be on the list if they were not anti-abortion.
No one who has survived in politics as long as Susan Collins has is actually this naive. https://t.co/r42WvhdbPa

Tapper: Dont you think Neil Gorsuch, whom you voted for, will probably vote to overturn Roe?
Collins: "I actually don't."
This proves how flimsy Collins' pro-Roe position is. She is perfectly happy to let herself be suckered based on phony assurances about "precedent"

Trump basically signals he will appoint a judge who could overturn Roe v. Wade, even as he says he may not directly ask the question because people told him he shouldn’t. pic.twitter.com/UbOC8SeLII

The logic @SenatorCollins used to Tapper to create a framework for eventually supporting Trump’s pick defied credulity. But can Ds create enough 2020 threat to move her from that position, as logically incoherent (Roberts/Gorsuch are friends of #Roe?) as it was? https://t.co/F74VP3hvUM

To be clearer here after a reader email – they’ve addressed their views on constitutionality of Roe v Wade previously. There is a school of thought among some senior Rs that for Kavanaugh it’s a lesser issue. But as for how they view the law,’they’ve all stated it. https://t.co/C1lmr05BgV
