One of his Instagram posts last month compared sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to a childhood crush.

More than half the state's remaining voters have shown some proclivity for supporting Democrats, but their demographic makeup has become the party's most challenging subset: 98 percent are white, just 1 in 5 hold a college degree and just 16 percent are under the age of 40, according to the Third Way study.

Two years ago, McConnell blocked a vote on Garland, citing what he said was a tradition of not filling vacancies in a presidential election year.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in red states feared they could be kept in Washington while their Republican challengers ran free in their respective states.

The stakes were high, and the party-line fight over Kavanaugh was brutal.

The move comes after a long confirmation battle over Kavanaugh, one that had senators at one another's throats and resulted in such heightened tensions on Capitol Hill that some lawmakers were given additional security detail.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp was back in North Dakota before the deal was reached.

The outlook in Texas and Tennessee is more bleak for Democrats. Democratic opponents and their allies swiftly objected to some of the nominees, in large part over views aligned with stricter abortion access.

Vettel: Ferrari made it "too easy" for Mercedes
He is oozing confidence as was evident from a radio transmission during Friday's second practice session in Suzuka. It was meant to be the year Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel were finally going to go head to head.

While the Senate outlook is increasingly bright for Republicans, the House looks nearly guaranteed to flip to the Democrats next month. "The progressive grassroots have awoken to the crisis of Trump's takeover of the courts, and are not going to tolerate this kind of weakness for much longer". "Did you hear what he said?" he said imitating reporters.

Collins, the ME moderate Trump thanked in his opening remarks Monday, revealed on Sunday that she initially thought Kavanaugh "perhaps needed to withdraw" after she heard Christine Blasey Ford's "very compelling and painful" testimony.

"We want to resume the reins to a government out of control, and give them to decision-makers who can lead us in the right direction", said this week at a press conference Eman Hassaballa Aly, a organizer. They only "seek investigations. of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court", Henderson said in a statement.

Democratic leaders also recognized the risk that a deal that put more conservatives on the bench could anger and dispirit their base voters.

The 15 complaints refer to Kavanaugh's behavior after Christine Blasey Ford made her allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh public.

Real Clear Politics now places Democrats with a 6.9-point advantage over Republicans on the generic ballot.

Rasmussen also said Wednesday that voters are now evenly split between Democrats and Republicans on the generic ballot for the November 6 voting, with each party drawing 45 percent support. "I think probably next week." . If "the girl" gets a softer treatment than a man would get for perjured testimony, then there is no equality under the law, and I insist that men and women be treated equally under all circumstances. In a video purportedly shot at a recent campaign event in Georgia, Holder says, "When they go low, we kick them", paraphrasing former first lady Michelle Obama, who famously said during the 2016 campaign, "When they go low, we go high". "That's pretty good", he said amidst applause from the audience. "We need to do that".
