"We're gratified that he's given due deference to religious liberty, and that he has been supportive of a greater involvement of religious organizations and institutions in society", Cohen said.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it would mean a significant shift to the right for the Supreme Court, according to the Judicial Common Space system, a metric developed by political scientists Lee Epstein, Andrew D. Martin, Jeffrey A. Segal, and Chad Westerland.

Those protesting are calling on Florida Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio to reject the nomination.

Trump announced Monday that he would nominate Kavanaugh, a US appeals court judge, to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court.

The GOP's effort - which includes an extensive field program, digital ads and op-eds - targets Democratic senators up for re-election in states Trump won in 2016 and illustrates how crucial Republicans believe the issue will be for their base in the midterm elections.

"Abortion is a right I feel must not go away, and I feel like people aren't mobilizing so much because it's so complicated and it's hard to understand".

Both of the Republicans running for a chance to take on Baldwin in November support Kavanaugh. We must never go back to the days when women like my mother were forced to put their lives at risk in order to plan their families, pursue their dreams, and chart the course of their own lives.

President Trump's other appointee to the high court, Justice Neil Gorsuch, reported assets in excess of $3.6 million.
