Trump Says Energized Republicans Must Vote to Ensure Unexpected Senate Wins

Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

In exchange for early recess to go home to campaign, Democrats have agreed to immediately confirm 12 district court judges and 3 appeals court judges and not require the 30 hour rule for debate.

In the Senate, Republicans are trying to hold on to three Republican-held districts where the Democratic aggregate vote in the primary was higher than the Republican vote: Miloscia's seat, Republican. Sen. A GOP gain of two or three Senate seats this cycle will make it very hard for Democrats to win the Senate in 2020, when two vulnerable Democratic Senate seats are up - in Alabama and New Hampshire - and four vulnerable GOP seats are up - in Colorado, Iowa, Maine and North Carolina.

He emphasized that Washington voters are known to not vote a straight party line ticket, and he said he trusts voters will continue to vote for person over party.

University of Virginia analyst Kyle Kondik told VOA the furor over Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual misconduct when he was a teenager, which he denied, could be "weaponized" by Republican Senate candidates looking to defeat Democratic incumbents in Republican-leaning states. Polls show that most of the red state Democrats are in competitive races. She voted Wednesday on a health care bill that was a top priority for Democrats but wasn't around for votes later Wednesday or Thursday on Trump nominees. They only "seek investigations ... of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court", Henderson said in a statement. The battle for Kavanaugh's Supreme Court seat has been won, but the larger war with the radical Democrat party will be lost if the fight is not taken directly to them and if they escape punishment for their un-American behavior regarding this issue.

Clearing the judicial nominees provided a signature walk-off for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has focused on reshaping the judiciary with more conservative jurists. We just don't think that is the most likely outcome.

But without any votes from Republicans - Democrats are powerless to stop the GOP from confirming judges.

While some GOP strategists say they see suburban men who have been on the sidelines returning to the Republican column, others say there has been only a slight bump for the GOP in recent weeks.

"I'd be foolish and dishonest if I didn't say this is a year where we've got more obstacles", he said.
