Schumer has led the resistance to President Trump. However, he has not offered up any solutions of his own.
"I'll be 71 years old in August, you're going to whip me? Kiss my you know what," Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said of anyone trying to influence his vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, particularly Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Schumer said this week after Trump's announcement ceremony that he's going to fight Kavanaugh with "everything he's got," meaning he's undoubtedly going to try and sway the members of his party to voting against the nominee. Yet, red state Democrats like Manchin plan on resisting those attempts. If anything, it seems Manchin is leaning toward "yes."
"He has all the right qualities," Manchin said of the nominee this week.
Vulnerable Sens. Joe Donnelly (IN), and Heidi Heitkamp (ND) also plan on making up their mind on SCOTUS sans Schumer's input.
