Democrats Agree To Confirm More Of Trump's Judicial Nominees - Again

  • Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

Roberts explained in the letter, addressed to Timothy Tymkovich, the Chief Judge for the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, that the complaints had originally been sent to the D.C. Circuit Court, where Kavanaugh previously sat, but that he had received requests from a judge on that court to transfer it to another circuit.

If Republicans do gain additional seats in the Senate, any contentious legislation passed in the House would likely not be passed in the Senate.

Seventeen of the races on the ballot are for open seats with no incumbent: 14 in the House and three in the Senate.

Hirono said she was not concerned about a backlash from Democratic voters if the deal appears favorable to Republicans.

Senate Democrats must want to get out of Washington to campaign. McConnell has all the leverage in the fight ― only two of his members are considered vulnerable this cycle, while Democrats count a half-dozen senators, most of whom wanted to go home and defend their seats.

"I think that people understand that there's a difference between the people talking on national news and the people they know in their neighborhood", he said.


Trump has a busy campaign schedule to spread the word that the allegations against Kavanaugh were a "hoax that was set up by the Democrats" at what he's called a risky time for men who can be falsely accused.

More broadly, the stakes in November for Democrats are extremely high. Following the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the party base had rallied in defense of Kavanaugh with a noticeable uptick in enthusiasm just weeks away from the midterm elections.

Republicans now control 240 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, while Democrats hold 195. Surveys of likely voters are routinely more accurate barometers of Election Day outcomes than those of registered voters. Because the Republican Party has closely tied itself to the president's image and agenda since he took office, these numbers bode very poorly for them going into the midterm elections.

Never again can Republicans allow Democrats to disrupt the Senate's obligation to seriously and honestly consider judicial appointments by the president and to endlessly stall these appointments, and never again can the Democrats insist on special treatment and white-glove handling of "the girl".

"Elections matter and I would like my colleagues to be able to go home", she said.
