GOP Voters Madder, More Likely to Vote Because of Kavanaugh

Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Donald Trump’s Swearing-In Ceremony Of Brett Kavanaugh

As he has been doing often recently on the campaign trail, Trump singled out specific Democrats for scorn - including Sens.

Exactly four weeks before the midterm elections that will decide whether his Republican party continues to control Congress, Trump traveled here, just east of the Missouri River, to campaign for GOP incumbents in three highly competitive House races and for Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds. Their impeachment of Clinton was less popular among the public than they hoped.

After Murkowski expressed her intention to vote against Kavanaugh, both Sarah Palin and Laura Ingraham dropped hints that they might challenge her when she is next up for re-election in 2022.

The vote was also aimed at refocusing people away from the Senate's nasty battle over confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, which both sides say has transformed indifferent conservative voters into motivated ones - for now.

Though Wake did not provide specific details about the uptick in sexual assault reports, she said Ford's testimony showed how hard it can be to report sexual misconduct.

Protesters continued to take a stand against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh this week, but came in fewer numbers and were mocked online.

He cited the Republicans' thin, 51-49 Senate majority.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says "nobody's going to beat" Republican Sen.

Roberts said in his letter that he was initially notified of complaints against Kavanaugh on September 20.

Mocking some Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee who pressed the case against Kavanaugh, Trump said: "The Democrats have become too unsafe to govern". Though the joint resolution was never likely to pass the House, or be signed by the president, the Democratic move forced Republicans in close Senate races to record a key health-care vote less than a month before Election Day.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that Democratic threats to investigate President Donald Trump's finances and businesses would "help the president get re-elected" in 2020.

The Trump administration issued a final rule on Wednesday that clears the way for the sale of many more health insurance policies that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act and do not have to cover prescription drugs, maternity care or people with pre-existing medical conditions.

Kavanaugh was confirmed by a razor-thin 50-48 majority in the U.S. Senate following accusations of sexual misconduct, including one of sexual assault as a high-schooler, that he emphatically denied.

The Kentucky Republican said he was speaking from experience.

Roberts took no action on them while Kavanaugh's nomination was pending.

At Northwestern University, associate general counsel Sarah Wake said that since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, she has observed a significant increase in student reports of past sexual misconduct to the Office of Equity. The school recently said that Kavanaugh will not be returning to teach there.
