The 53-year-old Kavanaugh has served as a federal judge for 12 years.
Linder said it's more likely Kavanaugh would vote with the other conservatives to chip away at Roe vs. Wade on a state-by-state basis. Kay Cole James, president of the Heritage Foundation, said Trump "has selected yet another highly-qualified individual who, like Neil Gorsuch, will be impartial, fair, and principled".
He has ruled on hundreds of cases and contributed to prosecutor Kenneth Starr's report into president Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which outlined grounds for Clinton's impeachment.
Regarding Kavanaugh being poorer than the others, many of whom had considerable earnings during years of non-government legal work, Shah said, "He's devoted his life to public service".
Schumer is claiming Trump chose Kavanaugh because he is an advocate for strong executive powers and will protect Trump from Robert Mueller.
Senator Richard Blumenthal went a step further "Judge Kavanaugh, you don't belong in this building as a justice", he said.
But there's no need to worry about Kavanaugh's spending habits, because that debt of up to $200,000 was suddenly paid off, or fell below reporting requirements, last year.
There's a record number of women raising their hands for public office in recent months, putting a focus on female empowerment in an era of #MeToo.
"We know what we are getting with judge Kavanaugh", Graham added. 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.
TV commentator's cat climbs onto his head during interview
Targalski didn't even paws (sorry) as Lisio crawled up his arm, perching on his human's shoulder and grooming Targalski's ear. The footage was shared by journalist Rudy Bouma who like others was impressed by how unruffled the political scientist was.

Stormy Daniels arrested at strip club for 'letting patrons touch her'
Columbus police have not confirmed any arrest, and neither have Siren's Gentlemen's Club. CNN has reached out to the Columbus Police Department for additional information.
Ironically, those Senate gains would make it easier to confirm a very conservative Trump nominee after the midterms.
McConnell told reporters that Kavanaugh's confirmation should be complete by the time the Supreme Court's new session begins in October.
Not everyone was quick to accept the White House explanation of Kavanaugh's baseball debts paid off by friends, however, with comments on social media questioning the Trump court nominee's judgement, as well as the official explanation.
If Republican Senators don't break ranks, the votes of their Democratic colleagues won't matter.
The focus is on GOP Sens.
After much hemming and hawing, the two Republican senators most apt to withhold their support, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, will ultimately back the nominee, saying they are comfortable with his record and temperament.
Conservative groups, meanwhile, have praised Kavanaugh.
Manchin is one of five Senate Democrats trying to get reelected in November in a state Trump won by double digits.
Kavanaugh's writings already have been cited in Supreme Court rulings, as in a 2013 decision preventing certain USA lawsuits against foreign corporations alleged to be responsible for human-rights abuses overseas and a 2015 decision stopping the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating mercury emissions from coal-fired plants without taking account of costs.
But that's all the more reason, he warned Democrats, not to let their opposition get out of hand. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.
