Trump Democrats have turned into 'angry mob' Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

Republicans exacted a steep price from Democrats for an arrangement that will free up senators through Election Day: In a flurry of votes late Thursday, they pushed through 15 more judicial nominees, including three appeals court judges, on an expedited basis.

After President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in July, the Left immediately targeted him, smeared him, and sought to dig up any disqualifying information possible. "But, boy, looking back, assessing what went on during the Kavanaugh hearings, there is no doubt - as somebody that studies branding - there is no doubt that at least for Senate candidates, that the Kavanaugh hearings were a disaster the for the Democratic Party".

Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, said conservative voters are amped up after the Kavanaugh mess.

Senate Democratic leaders defended the decision as an obvious one.

Nearly immediately after the Senate vote, Democrats felt the chill from faraway North Dakota. She may be the most vulnerable Democrat running.

He emphasized that Washington voters are known to not vote a straight party-line ticket, and he said he trusts voters will continue to vote for person over party.

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

She said the back-to-back votes coming so soon after Kavanaugh's confirmation were especially painful. "Unfortunately, the House has only been in session for 10 days since the beginning of August, while the Senate has been working hard - a telling statistic about the politics and work ethic in the House this year".

Of the 33 Senate seats up this cycle, 24 are held by Democrats.

"Honest to God, I would answer that question, but I'm going to let you guys do that assessment", he said. McConnell said in response. Always. They couldn't care less about the truth, honor, integrity, or the damage they might do to an honorable man or woman, as long as they get their way.

When asked the most important of the factors that will affect their vote, more registered voters - Democrats and Republicans - cite the political party of the candidate, than choose any of the other issues.

Moving beyond a rancorous confirmation battle that divided the country, Brett Kavanaugh got down to business as a US Supreme Court justice on Tuesday and took an active role in arguments alongside his eight new colleagues on his first day on the job. The message to Republican voters: Democrats are employing radical tactics that are only growing worse.

If Democrats win control of the Senate in November, they could bring the rush of confirmations to an abrupt halt, much as McConnell did when Republicans won control of the Senate for the last two years of Obama's presidency. He added Monday that the fight over Kavanaugh, particularly that his nomination was stymied by unproven allegations, injected the GOP with an "adrenaline shot that we had not been able to figure out how to achieve in any other way".
