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

They were filed originally with Kavanaugh's old court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

The Democratic scenario for capturing the Senate always depended on swiping at least two - and probably three - Republican seats.

While numerous judges were approved with bipartisan support, nearly half were confirmed on mostly party-line votes.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Hawaii Democrat who become a hero to many progressives for her handling of the contentious Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation, said she wanted Schumer to cut a deal and get people home.

While Democrats hold most statewide offices in Washington, the political split in the Legislature is much narrower: Democrats now hold a one-seat advantage in the Senate and a two-seat advantage in the House.

But the Kavanaugh confirmation, as bitter and divisive as it was, was seen by many analysts as a victory for Trump. Many analysts expect a Democratic takeover of the House, but the Senate appears to be different story. 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. 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. That was reinforced by the poll's finding that 48 percent of Americans would vote for a Democrat and 38 percent of Americans would vote for a Republican if the congressional election was held in their district today. That led to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY making a deal with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to confirm the judges and allow for a recess, in order for candidates up for re-election to hit the campaign trail, Politico reported. They only "seek investigations ... of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court", Henderson said in a statement. At this point it seems likely that anger and accusations will swirl around the Justice for quite a while, and having open ethics complaints looked into by the Tenth Circuit isn't going to help matters much.

"There is a group of voters, older women that have been a pretty good support group for Republicans, and they are starting to turn on Republicans and I think they may be the deciding factor in this election", he said.
