The groups plan to develop two sets of ads, with one targeting Democratic incumbent senators up for reelection in Florida, Wisconsin, Missouri and Montana, who voted against Trump's last nominee to the high court, Neil Gorsuch.
West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, battling for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016, in a statement on Kavanaugh's nomination, said the "Supreme Court will ultimately decide if almost 800,000 West Virginians with pre-existing conditions will lose their healthcare".
Troy Covington, counsel at the Bloom Parham firm in Atlanta and a legal expert with experience in Supreme Court issues, spoke to Business Insider on Tuesday about what Senators will likely focus on during Kavanaugh's confirmation process and the long-term influence Kavanaugh could exert on the court. Shah said the undisclosed number of unidentified friends paid Kavanaugh back for their share of the tickets.
Baldwin is considered to be one of the most liberal Democrats running for reelection this year in a state carried by the president. "The people of Wisconsin need a fair, impartial and independent Supreme Court Justice who will stand up for them, not for powerful special interests".

"His introduction of that concept, I believe, appeared to lay the foundation for what ultimately became John Roberts' opinion to which the majority of the Supreme Court Justices joined to uphold ObamaCare". The groups sent Palin to Alabama a year ago to support Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.
However, the news of this endorsement was undermined by another letter signed by Kavanaugh's fellow alumnus of Yale Law School.
There are two Republican senators, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, who are being watched closely because of their pro-abortion rights stances and their votes against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act - "Obamacare". Now, it is not my place to say whether that should be a majority vote or what the Senate calls-in Washington speak-a cloture vote that requires sixty votes for something to happen.
"I am here tonight because I'm a United States senator", Sen. He said he would work to defeat Kavanaugh, in his words, "with everything I have".
"I think his confirmation will go well", Hatch said during brief remarks to reporters before meeting more privately with Kavanaugh.
