"Supreme Court: Murkowski To Mull Kavanaugh's Record On Tribes"

"Sen. Lisa Murkowski is scrutinizing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's record on tribal issues, as pressure grows from Alaska Natives to oppose President Trump's latest pick for the high court.

The Alaska Republican will have additional time to review the matter after the Senate Judiciary Committee today postponed a vote on Kavanaugh for one week — a move that was widely expected and is in accordance with the panel's rules.

Murkowski faces mounting pressure from Alaska Natives to oppose Kavanaugh, following questioning by Sen. Mazie Hirono at last week's confirmation hearings over his views on Native Hawaiians."
