Sen. Baldwin won’t back Trump’s pick for Supreme Court

Sen. Baldwin won’t back Trump’s pick for Supreme Court

King said the other reason is that the person will replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered the swing vote on the court.

McConnell went on to mock the media's coverage of Kavanaugh, including a Washington Post report that the judge had gotten into some debt over buying baseball tickets.

In 2016, he also reported a loan balance between $15,000 and $50,000.

The Washington Post reported on his baseball expenditures, which included season tickets for himself. Shah said the undisclosed number of unidentified friends paid Kavanaugh back for their share of the tickets. Shah said Kavanaugh's friends reimbursed him, and he's no longer in charge of purchasing the tickets.

Separate from the disclosure forms, the White House said that between Kavanaugh's retirement account balance of $400,000 to $500,000, and the equity in his home in Chevy Chase, Maryland, he has about an additional million dollars in wealth.

Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir said that "Baldwin's obstruction on Judge Kavanaugh's appointment is proof that she'd rather stand with her liberal activist San Francisco donors than uphold the Constitution".

He said that Kavanaugh has assets of almost $1 million between the equity in his home and his retirement account.

"By nominating Judge Kavanaugh, the Trump-Pence administration continues its self-serving assault on civil rights, women's rights and LGBTQ rights", said Jon Harris Maurer, public policy director of Equality Florida, a group that seeks equal rights for LGBT Floridians. Kavanaugh has reportedly stopped buying season tickets.

Yet others questioned exactly why Kavanaugh's debts were suddenly paid off past year. The Court's newest justice, Neil Gorsuch, reported assets worth between $3.6 million to $10.5 million in his most recent filings.

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.

Kavanaugh lives in the affluent Village of Chevy Chase, Section 5, where his wife works as the town manager and draws a $66,000 annual salary. "Whoever is appointed will be in the job for thirty or forty years".
