WASHINGTON DC- JANUARY 22 Pro-life activists stand off against pro-choice activists during the 2016 March for Life

"The President vowed to appoint judges to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade, and I can not support a nominee for a lifetime appointment who would turn back the clock on a woman's constitutional right and freedom to make her own health care choices, including access to birth control", Baldwin's statement said.

By 2017, his credit card debt was paid off, or did not meet the threshold of being reported on his disclosures. It reported that in 2016 the nominee had reported accrued debt of between $60,000 and $200,000.

Major League Baseball is perhaps the only affordable major pro sport left in America, but Supreme Court nominee Brett Cavanaugh still managed to max out three credit cards and a Thrift Savings Plan loan buying tickets to see the Washington Nationals in 2016, the White House said Wednesday.

"Even though he has Ivy League credentials and a fancy job, he's kind of a regular, all-American guy", Helgi Walker, who worked with Kavanaugh in the George W. Bush White House told the Washington Post.

Kavanaugh, 53, a 12-year veteran of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, is expected to face a bruising confirmation battle. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements.


Progressive and civil rights organizations are speaking out against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition to abortion, Baldwin also pointed to concerns about the fate of ObamaCare and protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions in explaining her opposition to Trump's latest Supreme Court pick. Judges are required by law to submit financial disclosures.

On Kavanaugh's chances to be confirmed by the time the new Supreme Court session begins in October, Grassley said that "with the possibility of getting five or six Democrats and all the Republicans sticking together, yes, but if all the Republicans don't stick together and the Democrats smell blood, then I don't think we'll get any Democrats".

Senate Democratic women are planning a Thursday event at the Capitol with Planned Parenthood and NARAL to argue to Republicans like Collins and Murkowski that Kavanaugh would threaten Roe v. Wade and women's access to contraceptives.

Al Kauffman, a professor at St. Mary's University School of Law, said Kavanaugh has a pretty good chance at getting confirmed based on his qualifications, but it will be a very close vote.
