The White House has tried to portray President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as a down-to-earth guy who engages in wholesome activities like watching sports and mentoring kids when he isn't ruling against women's reproductive rights or explaining why the president is above the law.
New Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh reportedly went deep in debt in order to purchase Washington Nationals tickets, according to the Washington Post. "But what the American people ought to know is that, as the president said today, this is not an issue he discussed with Judge Kavanaugh; I didn't discuss it with him either".
Democrats in turn hope to peel off some Republicans including Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and/or Susan Collins of ME, two senators who support abortion rights and have split with their party before on whether to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
"I hope in the end when push comes to shove that (Kavanaugh) will have acquitted himself in a way that will allow all 50 of our Republican senators to be able to vote for him", Thune said. Now is the time to fight for the freedoms and rights that all Americans deserve, and that's what's at stake with this Supreme Court nomination.
Defeating Kavanaugh's nomination would be an even more significant victory and - given what appears to be a unified Republican Senate majority - much less likely. Eighty-four percent of Judge Kavanaugh's women clerks have gone on to secure Supreme Court clerkships.

The states the RNC is focusing on are Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and MI. In the spring and summer of 2017, Democrats in Congress and progressive activists rallied opposition to the GOP plan to gut Obamacare, eventually creating enough of a backlash that, after months of protests, Republicans in the Senate fell short of delivering the long-promised overhaul. He has advised President Trump on the president's judicial nominations, and he's served for years as the executive vice president of the Federalist Society. Kennedy has been a key vote in decisions on abortion and gay marriage. What you really want are judges who are going to take a case, look at it fairly at the very beginning, consider precedent, history, tradition, the language of Constitution and make an independent and fair decision.
Kavanaugh's name came to Trump through a list of candidates vetted by the Federalist Society.
If confirmed, his relatively modest means would rank Kavanaugh in the lower tier in personal finances among members of court. The last two Supreme Court nominees - Justices Elena Kagan and Neil Gorsuch - were approved after about 66 days.
