Senate deal that allows lawmakers leave DC to campaign


While Democrats have forced Republicans to use extra debate time repeatedly on nominations, GOP leaders have been relentless in using time on the Senate floor for judicial picks by President Trump in 2017 and 2018, confirming 84 judges to all levels of the judiciary.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has referred all judicial misconduct complaints against new Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Colorado to investigate, he said in a letter Wednesday.

The deal is a significant victory for McConnell, who has made clearing a long list of President Donald Trump's nominees, especially judges, a top priority this year. She may be the most vulnerable Democrat running.

After polls had tightened last month, Texas Republican Ted Cruz now has an 8-point and 9-point lead over Democrat Beto O'Rourke in recent polls by NYT/Siena and Quinnipiac, respectively.

"It's not about me right now, it's about individual races", he said.

The battle for Kavanaugh's Supreme Court seat has been won, but the larger war with the radical Democrat party will be lost if the fight is not taken directly to them and if they escape punishment for their un-American behavior regarding this issue. This would be an "extraordinary violation of constitutional and political norms" and is unlikely, but the pressure may "make some of the conservative justices more cautious" on future rulings.
