The Republican National Committee on Friday ripped as "hysterics" Hillary Clinton's attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a speech to the American Federation of Teachers in Pittsburgh.

"Democrats seem to be running out of legitimate arguments to make against the judge, and are returning to the hysterics," the committee said on its website.

"Whether these 'devastating' attacks will resonate with the American people remains to be seen."

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, 53, a federal appeals court judge, on Monday to succeed the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, 81, who had been on the court since being confirmed in 1988 after being named by former President Ronald Reagan.

Clinton told the AFT that Kavanaugh would turn back the clock in America "to the 1850s."

"This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers' rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women's rights," Clinton said, the Washington Examiner reports.

"It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the court for decades and to reverse decades of progress," she added. "I used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s.

"Now, I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s."

Clinton, whose 2016 Democratic presidential bid was endorsed by the AFT, highlighted the importance of the party taking back Congress in the November midterm elections.

"The future of America really depends upon what we do in November," she said, according to the Examiner. "If we take back one or both houses, which I pray we do, then we can start holding people accountable again the way they should be.

"The alternative is too grim to think about."
