Democrats to force health care vote Wednesday in the Senate

Murkowski on Trump I know Alaska 'better than he does'

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 past year that some argue ultimately helped Democrat Doug Jones get elected, thereby decreasing the Supreme Court vote's margin for defections. So why don't we follow what Curtis Johnson seemed to do in applying those general statements to the specific statute at issue here and why wouldn't that then encompass the Florida statute, which requires more than, say, a tap on the shoulder?

The party that holds the White House typically loses seats in midterm congressional elections. "This business of presidential harassment may or may not be quite the victor they think it is".

McConnell says the gender gap "clearly is wider than it used to be", but says the controversy over Kavanaugh could end up helping Republicans by generating more enthusiasm among GOP voters who feel he was mistreated.

More than a dozen complaints filed against new Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh were transferred to a federal appeals court in Colorado on Wednesday.

The public nature of a case previous year involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual. Some even speculated anger over Democrats' treatment of Kavanaugh would spur GOP voters even more.

Fox News' Harris Faulkner asked McDaniel for her thoughts on a recent CNN poll that showed 58 percent of Americans disapproved of the way Democrats handled the Kavanaugh nomination, with only 30 percent approving.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit has received complaints about Brett Kavanaugh's statements during hearings on his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a statement Saturday by a judge on the federal appeals court.

A Republican in CT who is running for Senator Chris Murphy's seat seems to have benefitted from the rancorous confirmation battle. During the vote, Murkowski withdrew her "no" vote, changing it to "present" instead, effectively pairing it with Republican Sen.

If control of Congress does split, he envisions a Republican Senate majority keeping full-throttle on confirming the president's nominees - including another Supreme Court pick if there's a vacancy on the high court. He pointed out that Murkowski won election as a write-in vote in 2010. Republicans slammed Clinton for her statement, especially as it came after Republicans were "shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats", in the age of the Trump administration. Kavanaugh denied the allegation.

At a political rally in support of Iowa and Nebraska Republicans, Trump called the Democrats' attempt to block Kavanaugh from the high court "a national embarrassment, a national disgrace", without mentioning the sexual assault accusation raised by Christine Blasey Ford when she and Kavanaugh were high school students in 1982.
