GOP Voters Madder, More Likely to Vote Because of Kavanaugh

Demonstrators protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as they rally outside of the Supreme Court

The 15 complaints deal with statements Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings.

"This was just basically sending as strong a signal as we could as candidates to the members who are now in to say that we need to take on these issues upon the new Congress coming in", Ms. Slotkin said.

Trump also heaped praise on Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, an immigration hard-liner who has often been criticized for statements about whites and minority groups. Others have faulted the majority leader for originally urging the president to nominate a judge more moderate than either Kavanaugh or Amy Comey Barrett, and for intervention in Alabama's special election a year ago that some argue ultimately helped Democrat Doug Jones get elected, thereby decreasing the Supreme Court vote's margin for defections.

Senate Democrats are planning to force a vote this week on a resolution that would overturn the Trump administration's expansion of short-term health insurance plans. Sen. Feinstein denied her office was the source of the leak.

"Hoyer and Pelosi have been measuring the drapes for years now only to come away empty-handed", said Jesse Hunt, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, the House GOP's campaign arm. Republicans have promoted them as a low-priced option for strapped consumers after years of steadily rising premiums, which they blame on Obama's law, and GOP candidates will be happy to use Wednesday's vote to make that point.

McConnell says he thinks the Kavanaugh fight contributed to Republican voters "getting more interested" in the midterm elections. His friend, Mark Judge, she alleged, watched and at times egged Kavanaugh on.

"One has to assume that no matter what was said during the confirmation process that he will approach each case, including this case, with an open mind", Bondurant said.

Hopkins was admitted to the bar in 1980 and disbarred by consent four years later in an order by the South Carolina Supreme Court. Hopkins is accused of opening fire from his home in an affluent neighborhood after deputies tried to carry out a search warrant.

McConnell wouldn't say whether the Senate would insist that Sessions' replacement would protect special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

"The Washington Post ran with this headline: "'An angry mob': "Republicans work to recast Democratic protests as out-of-control anarchy". "I don't know a thing", he said.

"It's not my job to do a routine sort of daily critique of the president's observations", he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was questioned Wednesday about President Trump's comments that Alaskans "will never forgive" Sen.

But McConnell suggested in an Associated Press interview Wednesday any shutdown would be modest because Congress already has provided yearlong funding for about 75 percent of federal operations.

He's expecting a "relatively lively" lame duck session after the election and did not shy away from a possible federal government shutdown over funding for Trump's border wall.

"That episode, if it occurs, would be in the portion of the government we haven't funded", he said.
