Claire McCaskill as she campaigns for re-election.

"We are concerned that Judge Kavanaugh's judicial record does not reflect the demonstrated independence and commitment to fair treatment for all that is necessary to merit a seat on our nation's highest court", Greenblatt said.

Texas may have an ally to gain if President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, is confirmed.

Trump is backing McCaskill's front-runner Republican challenger, Attorney General Josh Hawley. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the median net worth disclosed by Supreme Court justices was $4.6 million in 2017.

Baldwin voted against President Donald Trump's first Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, who was confirmed to the bench previous year. Rob Portman talk about Kavanaugh's qualifications before a meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill July 11, 2018 in Washington.

"Judge Kavanaugh has written some troubling things about environmental protections, consumer protections, commonsense gun safety laws - all of which should be carefully examined by this Senate and by the American people", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

This year's races at Daytona for Cup, Xfinity and Camping World Truck teams damaged the most vehicles at that track since 2012. Jones was involved in one of the many wrecks , but his No. 20 Toyota was still in good enough shape to get by Truex.

While President Trump stands staunchly against the Clean Power Plan, a Supreme Court decision narrowing the authority of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gasses could limit the ability of future administration's to change course.

"I will do extensive research, consult with a lot of people, do an in-depth personal interview and watch the hearings", Collins said.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the Senate. With Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) away undergoing treatment for a severe form of brain cancer, that majority has been 50-49 for months.

Democratic unity is far from a foregone conclusion. The Court's newest justice, Neil Gorsuch, reported assets worth between $3.6 million to $10.5 million in his most recent filings. "Stop playing political games and help us #StopKavanaugh".

Both of the Republicans running for a chance to take on Baldwin in November support Kavanaugh. 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.

"We have to win over two different sets of senators", said Fallon.
