Meet the Man With the Same Name as Brett Kavanaugh

It's possible that events over the next few weeks will change that arithmetic, but for now, Republican net Senate gains seem more likely than Democratic gains.

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.

Positive views of Kavanaugh among Republicans have grown at the same time, increasing 18 points from 62% in August to 80% now.

Thursday afternoon the Senate took up all 15 nominations, consisting of 12 district judges and three circuit judges. "On Fox News, Bret Baier said Roberts referred allegations of judicial misconduct claims on Kavanaugh to outside judges for investigation". He did so while simultaneously mocking Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA and saying that should she win the Democratic nomination in 2020 and they were to debate, he would toss an ancestry test to her and dare her to take it.

And other Democrats warned the intensity of the protests will spill over into the November elections.

"When they go low, we kick them", former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. says after a clip of a pro-life protester is kicked in the face by an abortion activist.

"Maybe some of that animus remains for Republicans and that is a rallying cry for the midterm", Kondik said. "But I think this year there are a lot of things that are happening that are motivating both sides".
