Bernie Sanders: Supreme Court fight won't be won in Washington

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court.

Kavanaugh's friends reportedly reimbursed him for "their share of the baseball tickets", and the judge has "since stopped purchasing the season tickets". "The stakes are simply too high for anything less".

Many of Heitkamp's colleagues-as well as her Republican opponent for Senate this November, U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.,-shared their thoughts nearly immediately after the announcement. Baldwin, like other Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh, cited concerns that abortion could be banned as a reason to not support him.

He said it was clear that many Democrats "didn't care who the nominee was at all".

"I don't think this president could have chosen somebody that better protects him from a special counsel investigation", Booker told TMZ".

Senators will be seeking access to Kavanaugh's writings and correspondence, reams of documents that will take weeks to compile and even longer to review, giving opponents ample opportunity to wage a political battle. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the median net worth disclosed by Supreme Court justices was $4.6 million in 2017. Those issues will be central to a heated fight among Democrats to persuade moderate Republicans and moderates in their own party to oppose Kavanaugh. "And particularly because Judge Kavanaugh has spoken out in speeches and made rulings against the ACA".

The most vulnerable Democratic senators heading to the midterms include Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Joe Donnelly of IN - all of whom voted for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch previous year.

The states the RNC is focusing on are Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and MI.

"Judge Kavanaugh's record shows a deep respect for and strict interpretation of the Constitution", said Sen.

President Donald Trump announced his nomination of Kavanaugh Monday.

"Clearly, Democrats have already lined up", Pickerill noted. Kennedy has been a key vote in decisions on abortion and gay marriage.

They believe Kavanaugh, who would replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, will mean overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision legalizing abortion nationwide, eroding the rights of the LGBTQ community and weakening gun laws.

"As a point of comparison, look at Bob Casey who is also up for re-election in the Trump-won state of Pennsylvania. I have every confidence that this man is going to be confirmed, as he well should be".

Cramer also praised Kavanaugh's commitment to "the rule of the law and the USA constitution", along with Kavanaugh's academic background at Yale.
