Feingold says he has "grave concerns" about how Alito would rule on cases involving the Bill of Rights during wartime. He says he fears Alito will continue his trend of deferring to the executive branch at the expense of individual rights.

Kohl says confirming Alito is a "gamble with our liberties."

Both Democratic senators say they fear Alito will oppose legalized abortion by voting to overturn Roe vs Wade.

Both senators voted to confirm John Roberts for Supreme Court Chief Justice last year.
