1. I Fail To See Why That's More Pressure

 

She's just as likely to vote with her repub Senator counterpart, than be influenced by a Democratic leaning Independent and a Democrat Lt. Gov.

2. The last major vote needed from her and Collins

(Health Care Vote) was on condition of promises made by McConnell that were not kept..
McConnell screwed them over and I don't imagine she has forgotten that.

3. Yes, the voices from Alaska are getting louder and louder.

"Walker and Mallott noted in their statement that Alaska is home to 227 indigenous tribes, arguing that Kavanaugh’s views on Native issues could jeopardize the “Indian Child Welfare Act, Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act, and other laws that enable tribal self-determination.”
