Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) - condemned the choice and said Kavanaugh, if confirmed, could mean the end of Roe v. Wade and a negative impact on women.
The Post article, published on Wednesday, spotlighted Kavanaugh's debts and use of credit cards.
In 2006, he reported a debt of $60,000 to $200,000 from three credit cards and a loan.
When questioned on the matter, White House spokesman Raj Shah claimed Kavanaugh had built up the debt buying baseball tickets for himself and his friends.
Kavanaugh's disclosure shows that in 2016, he reported $60,000 to $200,000 of debt from three credit cards and a United States government loan, some of which was spent for home improvements, according to Shah.
Shah did not provide the names of the friends or additional details about the tickets.
Kavanaugh spent 12 years as a judge on the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, and has a record of more conservative rulings on environmental cases, favoring industry over regulators especially in cases related to greenhouse gas emissions.

"In law school I learned that no person is above the law".
