Planned Parenthood Protests Brett Kavanaugh's Nomination In Front Of Florida's Supreme Court

Was Kavanaugh picked to block Mueller probe

While one national political analyst said McCain, who has been in Arizona since late past year battling brain cancer, may be willing to give up his seat if it would help Kavanaugh be confirmed, another Arizona lawmaker has different thoughts.

She joins with other Democrats in opposing the nomination.

The exact reason why the debts were paid off were not disclosed but Shah told WaPo that the amounts of the loan and credit card debt fell below reporting levels in 2017. Shah said the undisclosed number of unidentified friends paid Kavanaugh back for their share of the tickets.

Shah did not provide the names of the friends or additional details about the tickets. She says she doesn't think Kavanaugh is that justice. Ledger believes anybody on that list - including Kavanaugh - will undermine access to abortion.

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". The value of residences is not subject to disclosure, and Shah added that Kavanaugh has a government retirement account worth almost half a million dollars that also was not required to be disclosed. "But from what little he's written, it doesn't appear that he's going to be writing in a whole different vein than where the court as a whole has been - but that's a guess". Season tickets, for 81 games, near the dugout can run about $6,000.

If confirmed, his relatively modest means would rank Kavanaugh in the lower tier in personal finances among members of court.

The annual salary in 2018 for a circuit court judge is $220,600, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

Federal law requires only broad ranges for disclosure forms, and such filings include assets for spouses, so it is hard to pinpoint an exact financial snapshot for an individual.

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.

President Trump's other appointee to the high court, Justice Neil Gorsuch, reported assets in excess of $3.6 million.

- "Purchasing season tickets to watch the chronically disappointing Washington Nationals play baseball in their charmless stadium year after year", Deadspin deadpanned "is a troubling sign of poor judgment".
