US Midterms 2018 - Donald Trump | A Divided America

12 Octobre 2018

In the Senate, Republicans are trying to hold on to three Republican-held districts where the Democratic aggregate vote in the primary was higher than the Republican vote: Miloscia's seat, Republican. Sen.

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.

"Lose the Senate and the project of confirming judges is over for the last two years of President Trump", McConnell said in an interview in his Capitol Hill office with NPR. An analysis of Kantar Media/CMAG advertising data by the Wall Street Journal from January 1 through September 30 found that almost half of all Democratic advertisements mentioned health care, in comparison with just 21 percent of Republican advertisements.

All that turned around when Republicans grew frustrated with the protracted battle over Kavanaugh.

Garland had been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, but Senate Republicans never acted on the nomination. So did the congressional aide who revealed personal information of several Republican Senators, as did "Colbert Show" writer Ariel Dumas when she tweeted that, even though Kavanaugh was confirmed, "I'm just glad we ruined (his) life". The Democrat politicians, however, aren't quite as dumb; they know the majority of Americans in the majority of states do not want their politics, as was confirmed by how red the 2016 national electoral map was.

Should they do so, however, they will face two years of frustration and failure. "No question about that".

Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said the caucus has "some pretty strong feelings about the whole issue now", but hedged a bit by saying that he "wouldn't presume to" speak for what Schumer might accept.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning that recent statements and actions by Democrats and liberal writers and protesters are "only Phase One of the meltdown". While it's unclear how many of those picks McConnell plans to seek a pre-election deal on with Schumer, the Kentucky Republican has underscored that he intends to follow his victory on Kavanaugh with more judicial confirmations before the midterms.

McConnell said that while anyone can throw their name into the ring to challenge Trump in a 2020 presidential primary, he believes it would be a "waste of time" for any Republican to try. "We've always had that", though in general "it clearly is wider than it used to be".

Last Thursday, hundreds of students and faculty members demonstrated on Low Steps and in the International Affairs Building in protest of Kavanaugh's nomination. "We stood up for that fact that you're presumed innocent in this country and we also stood up to the efforts to intimidate us", he told reporters. And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy!

Daisy Thomas, the chairwoman of the Utah Democratic Party, said given the state's political leanings, the poll numbers would normally be much higher but Trump and Kavanaugh's style irritates and turns off more voters who would likely side with them.

Alaska Sen. Murkowski was the only Republican who voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination to a full roll call, and she voted "present" on the final tally.

Fellow Democrat, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), discounted Clinton's comments on abandoning civility with Republicans as being nothing short of outrageous.

It's not unusual for Republicans and Democrats alike to sharpen their rhetoric as elections draw near in hopes of drawing loyal voters to the polls. "I am optimist about the future of America and the future of our independent judiciary".
