The White House on Tuesday night announced its intention to renominate 50 judicial nominees, rekindling a battle between Republicans, who hope to capitalize on their record-breaking judicial success from the last Congress, and Democrats, who have lashed out at some of President Donald Trump’s more controversial nominees.

…”Kavanaugh’s confirmation awakened progressives to the importance of our courts,” said Christopher Kang, who serves as counsel for Demand Justice, a group that formed to oppose Trump’s nominees.

“Our courts will have the final word on many of Trump’s policies and will be his most lasting legacy — now we’re starting to fight like it,” he said.
