Activists and Democratic Party leaders are vowing to fight Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. That push, however, may not have universal support among all Democrats. In an interview with WBFO, Buffalo State Political Science Professor Peter Yacobucci points out "there are so many Democratic Senators that are up for election in states that Trump won." Those Senators may need to support Kavanaugh's nomination as they fight for reelection.

Monday - Friday, 6 a.m. - 10 a.m.
