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

Baldwin, like other Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh, cited concerns that abortion could be banned as a reason to not support him. He clerked for Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom he will replace if confirmed, and graduated from Yale Law School.

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.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, right, meets with Sen.

While President Trump said potential nominees for the Supreme Court were not asked how they would vote on specific cases, he asserted as a presidential candidate in 2016 that Roe V. Wade could be overturned with the right justices.

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, 53, who sits on the federal appeals court in Washington, was nominated Monday by Trump to succeed Kennedy, 81, who was named in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan.


Judge Brett Kavanaugh listens to Sen.

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.

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. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - both considered swing votes in the Senate who could help Democrats with the majority against Kavanaugh. Gattone worries Kavanaugh will be too far to the right.

The Republican National Committee is launching an effort to turn President Donald Trump's Supreme Court appointment into a dominant issue in 10 key states ahead of November's midterm elections, CNN has learned. They can't afford to lose one vote over this nomination fight.

"I think he very much shares the same judicial philosophy as Justice Gorsuch, so I look forward to supporting his nomination", Cornyn said.
