Claire McCaskill, released a 30-second television ad focused on the Supreme Court and warning that "our way of life is at risk".

Earlier Wednesday his public disclosure forms for 2017 showed that the federal judge would come to the nation's highest court with only two investments, including a bank account, together worth a maximum of $65,000, along with the balance on a loan of $15,000 or less.

McCaskill's campaign spokesman Eric Mee in a statement to The Associated Press said instead of attacking her, Pence should explain why tax changes gave pharmaceutical companies a "massive windfall".

As senators begin the process of vetting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, public disclosure forms show he's not almost as wealthy as numerous justices on the high court. "We must fight back against the unsafe nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Trump is backing McCaskill's front-runner Republican challenger, Attorney General Josh Hawley.

The poll, released Thursday, found that 64 percent of Americans support the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the US, and they would not like to see it overturned.

"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.

"Some of the people that have come up to me at parades have said, 'Shut 'em down, do this, do that, ' and it reflects a limited understanding of how the Senate operates", Richard J. Durbin of IL, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate, said this week.

Wade and women's access to contraceptives. If all Democrats band together against Kavanaugh, they would still need one Republican to cross over to defeat him. The Court's newest justice, Neil Gorsuch, reported assets worth between $3.6 million to $10.5 million in his most recent filings.

Fallon tweeted back: "We already know the answers to these questions, Tim Kaine. Stop playing political games and help us #StopKavanaugh" responded Brian Fallon, whose group, Demand Justice, is working to defeat the judge's nomination.

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

"There's a potential here for things to get really snarled", he said, adding he believes the Senate should hold off on a confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh until all the documents are reviewed.
