McConnell Shepherds Through 15 More Judges, Senate Packs Up Until Midterms

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.

It is also a boon for senators seeking re-election, especially those 10 Democrats running in states won by Trump in 2016, because they will be free finally to leave DC and focus more fully for the next month on their campaigns.

McConnell says Republicans learned that lesson when they launched impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton in 1998.

"Senator Heitkamp is back in North Dakota meeting with workers and families across her state", McDonough said. Throughout the Kavanaugh controversy we were told it would be deadly for Republicans among suburban women voters they need to avoid being blown out in November.

Trump has a busy campaign schedule to spread the word that the allegations against Kavanaugh were a "hoax that was set up by the Democrats" at what he's called a risky time for men who can be falsely accused.

Polls have put her Republican opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, comfortably ahead.

The document stated that the government "expects" this arrangement to remain in place no later than the end of December 2021. The DUP has threatened to withdraw its support for the government if it is not happy with the final Brexit deal.


But Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat, said some of the nominees "are clearly controversial", meaning Democratic leaders had to balance their desire to get their candidates home with essentially allowing judges they oppose to advance.

While Democrats continue to see strong odds of recapturing control of the House and gaining governorships, Republicans will likely hold on to the Senate, riding a wave of enthusiasm following the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"It's not about me right now, it's about individual races", he said.

The survey produced nearly no good news for Democrats, who earlier this year expected to benefit from historical trends that show the party of first-term presidents nearly always lose congressional seats in the first midterm election after their inauguration.

More significantly, 77 percent of Democrats are now saying that they are "very motivated" to vote, compared to only 68 percent of Republicans - a bad sign considering other recent surveys showing Democrats with a marked lead over Republicans in a number of key districts in the House of Representatives.

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted.
