Senate Confirms 15 More Judges, Wrapping up a GOP Priority

  • Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

In a Quinnipiac University National Poll released October 2, 49 percent of voters said they support the Democratic candidate in their local race for the House of Representatives while 42 percent back the Republican candidate. And after last week's near-party-line Supreme Court vote, they have secured a conservative majority on the court that could last for a generation.

Republican Sen. Ann Rivers of La Center, who is involved with her chamber's campaign efforts, said Republicans are "waxing up our red surfboard in case there is a blue wave".

"Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior", McConnell said.

MSNBC contributor Rick Tyler shared the same opinion as Scarborough regarding the negative impact of the Kavanaugh hearings for Democrats. They haven't seen enough.

"Because I pledged that in 2016", Grassley said. "And they're seeing that our Republicans who are in power, who can stand up to the policies that [Trump] is pushing, that are anti-family, anti-worker, anti-American really, they're not seeing the kind of leadership we expect from our leaders".

"The more outrageous our Democratic colleagues treat this nomination of Judge Kavanaugh, the more energized Republican voters are becoming, because they realize what the alternative is", he told Politico.

Senate Democrats must want to get out of Washington to campaign.

Heitkamp should be a Democratic hero after her principled, damn-the-polls vote against Kavanaugh.

Other polling shows Republican women are also enraged by the treatment of Kavanaugh and plan to turnout in November.

The GOP rhetorical offensive also represents a flipping of the recent script, in which Democrats have accused Trump of intensifying divisions with nationalistic and at times racist appeals to his conservative base and personal attacks on political enemies.

Grass roots tea party activists opposed to President Barack Obama's health care bill noisily disrupted lawmakers' town hall meetings across the country in summer 2009, booing and accusing Democrats of lying.

McConnell's comments Thursday on the Senate floor decrying "mob behavior" advanced an election-season argument Republicans unveiled last week.

McConnell described demonstrators "literally storming the steps" of the Capitol, and pointedly noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice.

James Hodgkinson, who was killed at the scene by officers, was infuriated by President Donald Trump's election, his widow has said.

Hillary Clinton gave voice to this bitter frustration when she told CNN's Christiane Amanpour, "You can not be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about".

Fresh off the long and tumultuous confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was prepared to force Democrats' hands and keep them in Washington for weeks to confirm 15 judges sitting in limbo.
