Trump Says Energized Republicans Must Vote to Ensure Unexpected Senate Wins

  • Voters unimpressed with Democrats’ Kavanaugh performance dashing hopes for midterm boost- poll

And by calling up the judicial nominations now, McConnell will force Democrats to swallow more confirmations before their imperiled incumbents can leave Washington to campaign.[Democrats are] settling for a middle ground, with few committing to a full-on fight.Another Democratic senator said that "I think we will" take a deal on judges.

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. Republicans thought they would finally overturn the law as the court had eight justices appointed by Republican presidents.

The party is defending seats in 10 states that Trump won in 2016, and after a polarizing confirmation fight over Justice Brett Kavanaugh, many of those senators are facing greater enthusiasm among Republican voters.

"Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday in the latest GOP attack.

The Kavanaugh confirmation has blown open the midterm elections from being a national referendum on Trump's stewardship to a raw emotional discussion over the lack of women in power and how to handle sexual misconduct allegations.

The same question faces the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct after the White House successfully argued that the Kavanaugh allegations should not be conflated with the rest of the movement.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in red states feared they could be kept in Washington while their Republican challengers ran free in their respective states.

"It's turned our base on fire", McConnell said about the battle, which he's called a political gift.

When they return in mid-November, both chambers must settle a long-standing dispute over funding that Trump wants for a wall along the Southwestern border and other border security provisions.

More: Polls show Kavanaugh gave GOP an election boost. "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida. "You know they're up 40-50 percent in 401ks".

The rapid confirmation of judges comes days after the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose nomination gripped Washington and brought the Senate to a standstill.

Jason Perry, the head of the Hinckley Institute, based at the University of Utah, said Trump continues to see consistent numbers out of Utah surveys but that they're not as good as other Republican presidents have seen.

Clinton said on CNN this week that "civility can start again" after Democrats capture the House or Senate in next month's elections.

McConnell noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice by "a politically crazed gunman".

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

In a video purportedly shot at a recent campaign event in Georgia, Holder says, "When they go low, we kick them", paraphrasing former first lady Michelle Obama, who famously said during the 2016 campaign, "When they go low, you go high".
