Murkowski on Trump: I know Alaska 'better than he does'

President Donald Trump speaks during a rally at the Mid America Center in Council Bluffs Iowa

Some even speculated anger over Democrats' treatment of Kavanaugh would spur GOP voters even more.

He said it was unprecedented for a new justice to face such a situation.

Trump says: "I want to thank our incredible Republican senators for refusing to back down".

McConnell told The Associated Press on Wednesday the gender gap "clearly is wider than it used to be".

Opinion polls show Democratic voters are more enthusiastic about voting in the congressional elections, but Republicans have narrowed the gap in recent weeks and are using the Kavanaugh battle to try to get their voters excited about turning out.

That was the widest margin of support for Democrats in a midterm election since 2006, when the party had a 21-point lead over Republicans among likely voters.

Kavanaugh is expected to give the Supreme Court a reliable 5-4 conservative majority. None of the witnesses the women said would corroborate their claims did so, and Kavanaugh passionately denied the allegations.

As for the accusations against Kavanaugh, he said he found Christine Blasey Ford's account of her sexual assault "convincing" but noted that there had been no corroboration.

Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) has supported repealing the ACA, as well as the Trump administration's "junk" insurance rule.

Brett Kavanaugh takes his place on bench
The White House has yet to comment on the United Nations report . "My focus now is to be the best justice I can be", he said. The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke a year ago during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden.

The Judiciary Committee could add nine judges to that list during a meeting Thursday, and five others had their confirmation hearings Wednesday, meaning they, too, could see committee action this month. And second, Donald Trump, isn't he the guy who has everyone chanting "lock her up" 'lock her up?' Oh boy!

Kavanaugh had been accused of sexual misconduct in high school and college.

Trump on Twitter on Tuesday said he was "very proud" of Kavanaugh and his family, and disparaged the anti-Kavanaugh protesters.

But by pushing ahead, Democrats made Republicans cast a health care vote that Democrats could wield in campaign ads for next month's midterm elections, in which they hope to topple the GOP's 51-49 Senate majority. So why don't we follow what Curtis Johnson seemed to do in applying those general statements to the specific statute at issue here and why wouldn't that then encompass the Florida statute, which requires more than, say, a tap on the shoulder?

Unlike Obama's statute, the new policies don't require coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

"This business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is", McConnell told the Associated Press.

"If confirmed, I'll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks", he said. John Kennedy, Louisiana Republican, told The Washington Times.

McConnell wouldn't say whether the Senate would insist that Sessions' replacement would protect special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation. Lindsey Graham has been the subject of speculation about the job, but Graham said this week he has no interest. "I speak up when I think it's necessary". "The public got mad at us and felt sympathy for President Clinton".
