The RNC plans to make Brett Kavanaugh's nomination the focus of phone calls and door-to-door visits with flyers and petitions, as well as Facebook and Twitter ad buys, email campaigns, volunteer training efforts and op-eds in key areas.

"We're gratified that he's given due deference to religious liberty, and that he has been supportive of a greater involvement of religious organizations and institutions in society", Cohen said. "And that will happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court", he said.

If confirmed, Kavanaugh would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Justice Kennedy, who also spent the majority of his career in public service.

"In a breaking news bombshell report just last night, we learned that Judge Kavanaugh enjoys America's past time". In financial disclosure forms, Kavanaugh reported having $60,000 to $200,000 in debt in 2016, not including this $865,000 mortgage, and White House spokesman Raj Shah tells The Washington Post that President Trump's nominee went into debt buying Nats season tickets and playoff game tickets for himself and a "handful" of friends, and also on home improvements.

"Judge Kavanaugh argued that a president should not be subject to an investigation while in office, that a president should be above criminal and civil indictments", Schumer said. "Those are serious and risky beliefs".

"After reviewing this nominee's record, I know why powerful special interests in Washington selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh to work on the Supreme Court for them, not the people of Wisconsin", she said in the statement.

The RNC's first phase, which a staffer said is already in effect, is pushing information about Kavanaugh and his qualifications to Republican base voters in these states in an attempt to energize their most reliable portion of the midterm electorate.

"It is no surprise that a liberal obstructionist like Tammy Baldwin has announced she will vote against the confirmation of President Trump's Supreme Court nominee", said Nicholson's spokeswoman Ronica Cleary.

Democrats hope two Republicans who back abortion rights, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, will vote against the nominee. The justice with the highest reported assets was Stephen Breyer, who listed between $6.4 million and $16.6 million.
