Bernie Sanders: ‘Of Course' I'm Concerned Red-State Dems Might Vote For Kavanaugh
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily BeastSen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has launched an aggressive campaign to defeat Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. It's taken him from the cable airwaves to a trio of Midwestern states so far. But as he ramps up the effort, the Senator has kept an eye back on D.C. where, he worries, Democrats may not be able to unify the ranks against Trump's pick.

"Of course," Sanders told The Daily Beast in an interview last week when asked if he worries about red-state Democrats voting in favor of the nominee as they face daunting electoral prospects in November. "My hope is that the Democrats will stay united and that we will successfully get a couple of Republicans to join us. But obviously, if we're going to win, Democrats have got to stay united on this issue. But we start off this fight against a very united Republican party, a party that is very fearful of the president. But we have got to do everything we can to pry loose a couple of Republican senators."

Sanders' fears aren't unfounded. When President Trump nominated Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, towards the beginning of his first term in office, Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN)—all of whom are in tough re-election contests this cycle—voted to confirm him.
