Some Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have vowed to fight Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court in the Senate. Kavanaugh has reportedly stopped buying season tickets.

On Wednesday the White House revealed that Kavanaugh is actually so painfully "all-American" that he racked up a large amount of credit card debt due to his love of baseball.

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. "Investigative reporters scoured his financial disclosures and learned that he and his friends buy tickets to baseball games and that he pays his bills", McConnell said in a speech on Thursday.

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.

Kavanaugh's disclosure shows that in 2016, he reported $60,000 to $200,000 of debt from three credit cards and a U.S. government loan, some of which was spent for home improvements, according to Shah.

Conservative judges are assigned a score between 0 and 1; the closer you are to 1, the more conservative the judge.

But for Kavanaugh, the differences are stark between his finances and those of his would-be peers on the Court.

He lists just two kinds of assets - unspecified accounts held with Bank of America, and his wife's retirement fund from her job in Texas - totaling between $15,000 to $65,000.

He said that Kavanaugh has assets of almost $1 million between the equity in his home and his retirement account. The financial disclosure forms do not required that Kavanaugh disclose the source or nature of his payments, but as a federal appellate judge, Kavanaugh earns about $220,000 a year, and he made $27,000 teaching at Harvard Law School in 2017, according to the disclosures. The New York gubernatorial candidate shared an emotional story earlier this week about how important it is that Roe V. Wade-the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion across the country-remains intact. As the town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Kavanaugh's wife makes $66,000 annually.
