Collins has highlighted Kavanaugh's view of Roe as "settled law" to defend her support of the Supreme Court nominee, despite saying before his nomination she would not vote for a nominee who is "hostile" toward Roe.

On "The Five" on Friday, Jesse Watters said Booker's big moment of supposed defiance totally fell flat. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, said, "running for president is no excuse for violating the rules of the Senate". Kavanaugh said he didn't talk to anyone at the firm about that.
