Trump Says Energized Republicans Must Vote to Ensure Unexpected Senate Wins

Trump Says Energized Republicans Must Vote to Ensure Unexpected Senate Wins

And by calling up the judicial nominations now, McConnell will force Democrats to swallow more confirmations before their imperiled incumbents can leave Washington to campaign.[Democrats are] settling for a middle ground, with few committing to a full-on fight.Another Democratic senator said that "I think we will" take a deal on judges. Chris Kang, chief counsel for one such group, Demand Justice, accused Democrats of "weakness" in allowing so many nominations to advance and called Thursday's deal "totally unnecessary" and "a bitter pill to swallow so soon after the Kavanaugh fight". "Maybe. And there's a possibility they want infrastructure, I want infrastructure, there's something that can bring us together", he said.

Republican leaders made clear throughout the year they had no qualms about keeping senators in Washington until very close to Election Day. Republicans have said the rowdy opposition to Kavanaugh has given conservative voters a new enthusiasm. "That's why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that's when civility can start again."...

Republicans have seen a bump in polling since Kavanaugh' confirmation. And even before the Kavanaugh controversy, the Senate race there was among a handful of close contests that could decide whether Republicans keep control of the Senate, where they have a 51-49 majority.

Democrats say Trump's rhetoric since launching his 2016 campaign has been provocative, pugnacious and at times racist. She may be the most vulnerable Democrat running.

Grass roots tea party activists opposed to President Barack Obama's health care bill noisily disrupted lawmakers' town hall meetings across the country in summer 2009, booing and accusing Democrats of lying. Registered voters are better informed, but more than a quarter of them also say they don't know how their Senators voted. Republicans have said some received death threats and were stalked at their homes.

He emphasized that Washington voters are known to not vote a straight party-line ticket, and he said he trusts voters will continue to vote for person over party.

McConnell described protesters "literally storming the steps of the Capitol and the Supreme Court", confronting Republicans at restaurants and shouting from the Senate visitors' galleries during last week's debate and vote on Kavanaugh. "One, it energized the Trump base, but it also energized a lot of Republicans who weren't necessarily Trump supporters who might be looking for an alternative governing party, and what they saw on the Senate Judiciary Committee with the abandonment of the presumption of innocence, on the Judiciary Committee, which I think is always disqualifying, those Republicans said no, this is not what we're seeking". And he pointedly noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice by "a politically crazed gunman".
