New Mexico’s congressional delegation is divided on the Supreme Court nominee

“One of the major issues pending before the Supreme Court is healthcare and the right of pre-existing conditions, and I don’t have any doubt that he’s going to be on the wrong side of this from everything I’ve seen,” Sen. Tom Udall (D) said. 

Sen. Tom Udall said he is concerned how the nominee could rule on a number of issues. Fellow U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich (D) expressed concerns as well. 

Democratic Congresswoman Michelle Lujan-Grisham says she opposes the nomination. 

Meanwhile, Republican Congressman Steve Pearce says Judge Kavanaugh has a long record of legal accomplishment, and that he looks forward to the confirmation hearings.
