In his second day of testimony before the Judiciary Committee, Mr. Ashcroft answered questions about a variety of issues including abortion, gun control and civil rights. He said that despite his past opposition to existing laws on these issues he would faithfully enforce the laws and would not seek to undermine any laws that Congress might pass in the future. He also responded to questions about his opposition, while in the Senate, to the appointment of Ronnie White to the federal judiciary.

Representatives Waters and Jackson-Lee also testified in opposition to the nomination, objecting to his activism on behalf of conservative causes and his resistance of several legal precedents. close
