WASHINGTON D.C. (KNWA) — Confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will begin tomorrow morning.

Opening statements before the Senate Judiciary Committee begin at 9:30 a.m. and the hearings are expected to last three to four days.

They will have begun just under two months since President Donald Trump nominated the federal appeals court judge to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Republicans hold a slim majority in the Senate and they are hoping a combination of support from GOP senators and red-state democrats will confirm Kavanaugh and tilt the court to the right.

However, democrats said they are concerned about Kavanaugh’s position on issues ranging from executive power to his view of precedent, as it relates to Roe v. Wade.
