Do you approve of Trump's Supreme Court pick?

New Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reportedly went deep in debt in order to purchase Washington Nationals tickets, according to the Washington Post.

Senate Democrats know that they can't stop the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The issue, says Halbrook, is "when you have a permit for a handgun, whether you should be able to carry your handgun to a shooting range outside the City of NY, or take it to, for example, a home in upstate NY", both of which the City largely forbids.

Jenny Beth Martin, chairman of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, said Kavanaugh "has a stellar record of as an originalist, and has proven to be a strong defender of the Second Amendment and freedom of speech and religion". Opponents fear he might be the crucial fifth vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and curtail affirmative action, gay rights and the Affordable Care Act.

A Kavanaugh confirmation would spell a decisive shift to the right for the top judicial body. Special counsel Robert Mueller, of course, is now investigating potential collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

"The American people should have their eyes wide open to these stakes", said Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., could be a swing voter. But barring some previously unreported damning information on Kavanaugh coming out, President Trump's nominee will be confirmed, and should be.

Troy Covington, counsel at Bloom Parham and a legal expert, spoke to Business Insider about what issues will come up in Kavanaugh's confirmation and how the judge could influence the court. Kavanaugh was first confirmed to the appellate court in 2006.

"I have Trump nomination BINGO!" he exclaimed. Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority. John McCain of Arizona.

Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent who caucuses with opposition Democrats, said Kavanaugh would serve as a "rubber-stamp for an extreme, right-wing agenda pushed by corporations and billionaires". Some Democrats said Kavanaugh, a more committed conservative, could disrupt precedents like Roe v. Wade, which said women have the constitutional right to abortions.

The new campaign will join an increasingly crowded effort by outside groups on both sides of the political spectrum to influence public opinion and senate elections. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Sen.

"She's done well by North Dakota with (Gorsuch)", Aberle told the Tribune.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, appointed by Trump last year, reported assets of at least $3.6 million, and the average net worth of current members of the court was $4.6 million last year, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. "This is the only way Democrats maintain the ability to take back Congress".

By 2017, his credit card debt was paid off, or did not meet the threshold of being reported on his disclosures. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen.

Kavenaugh is meeting with senators to ask for their support.

"I don't concede the point that it's somehow counterproductive to the goal of winning in the midterms to fight like hell to stop Brett Kavanaugh", Fallon said. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md.

Abortion is likely to dominate the debate over Kavanaugh's confirmation. Activists said he represents a grave threat to bedrock environmental laws that protect clean air and water and endangered species. "We could see racism continue to flourish within the criminal justice system", the group, the US' largest civil rights organisation promoting the civil rights of African Americans, added.

Brune and other critics cited a 2014 opinion in which Kavanaugh argued that the Environmental Protection Agency must take monetary costs into consideration when deciding whether to regulate mercury and other pollutants from power plants. It's unclear what evidence there is for that, other than Trump's promise to appoint anti-abortion judges.
