Trump used his introduction of Kavanaugh to slam the judge's opponents

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.

Trump lauded Kavanaugh as a "brilliant jurist" and blamed Democrats for the focus on decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct that dominated debate in the weeks before the nominee's Senate confirmation on Saturday. The message to Republican voters: Democrats are employing radical tactics that are only growing worse.

The majority leader recalled what he described as the "price" that Republicans paid for impeaching Democratic President Bill Clinton in the 1990s. They haven't seen enough. I didn't believe the polls because I think they have tremendous energy.

"Things could tighten up [before the midterm election]".

A majority of Americans disapproved of Kavanaugh's nomination.

The Senate vote approving Kavanaugh's nomination followed a bitter partisan fight that became a firestorm after sexual misconduct allegations emerged. On the other hand, Democrats have also experienced a similar surge in enthusiasm which means more voters on both sides are becoming engaged with just 26 days to go before Election Day on November 6. What is equally as disturbing is the possibility that Kavanaugh knowingly lied under oath during his hearing in front of the Senate.

"Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior", McConnell said. Jamie Pedersen, who is chairman of the Washington Senate Democratic Campaign.

People familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity say the allegations had already been widely discussed in the Senate and in the public realm. Some of the people speaking out are brand-new to the struggle, but they are here. Right now at this point in 2016, [Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary Clinton was looking pretty strong.

Last month, Republican leaders in the House called for Rep. Matt Manweller to resign after The Northwest News Network reported that a former Idaho high school student of Manweller's said she had a sexual relationship with him in the 1990s, when she was 17. Feinstein has denied that she or her staff released the private letter. It was unclear if he was referring to the accusers, their lawyers or Democratic lawmakers. Know you aren't alone.

That September, tens of thousands of Tea Party demonstrators ringed the Capitol to protest the health care law and what they considered a wasteful, oversized federal government. It is time for Brett Kavanaugh to step down. "Not catch the first flight out of D.C.so they can advance their personal political standing", said Shaunna Thomas, the executive director of UltraViolet.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp has always been in for a tough race in 2018, but it looks like her disapproval of Judge Kavanaugh may have plunged her shaky support back home and began to give her challenger, Republican Kevin Cramer, some much-needed momentum into the home stretch.

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted. "We do have an affordability problem", Collins said Wednesday, "but I don't think the answer is to wipe out consumer protections for people with pre-existing conditions".
