Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas have been among those mentioned.

"I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican", he said.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are more likely to vote because of the Kavanaugh controversy, compared to 54% of Democrats and 46% of voters not affiliated with either major political party. In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The party that holds the White House typically loses seats in midterm congressional elections.

Trump wants three times the $1.6 billion the Senate is considering for the wall in a bill funding the Department of Homeland Security. Trump said. "Now was that the worst body language".

On the campaign trail Trump insisted Mexico would pay for the wall.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that that it would be "very, very hard to unseat the president in the primary".

While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber. Jeff Flake of Arizona, are considering challenging Trump in 2020.

McConnell said that "would be a waste of time frankly". Shortly afterwards, the U.S. high court came to order with the traditional call of "Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye".

"We've also achieved another historic victory for Iowa farmers by replacing the job killing NAFTA deal with the USMCA", he said.

With police standing by, a handful of protesters opposed to Justice Kavanaugh gathered outside the Supreme Court building on Tuesday morning, holding signs saying "Shame" and "He sits on a throne of lies", while chanting, "This isn't over, we're still here". "Our country, a man or woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty".

Many analysts predict Democrats will be able to take control of the House of Representatives, but it is far from clear if they can also capture the Senate.

McConnell says 'It worked exactly the opposite.

Tuesday's cases involved the 1984 Armed Career Criminal Act, a "three-strikes-and-you're-out" criminal sentencing law that boosts prison sentences for people who are convicted of crimes involving guns if they previously have been convicted of certain other crimes. Two other women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the allegations.

"Seriously, Hillary?" was the reaction of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was seriously wounded previous year when a shooter - who was a registered Democrat - targeted a Congressional Republican baseball practice in Virginia.

Lisa Murkowski for voting against Brett Kavanaugh.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declined to blame Democratic Sen.

Ford had asked for confidentiality in a letter to Feinstein. Feinstein has denied that she or her staff leaked the accusation.

He has already hired four women to serve as his Supreme Court clerks, something that he noted Monday evening was a first, and has studied the legal briefs for the cases on deck.

The president repeatedly touted the lifting of the ethanol restrictions during his hour-long rally and reiterated his support for the farmers of Iowa.

At Northwestern University, associate general counsel Sarah Wake said that since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, she has observed a significant increase in student reports of past sexual misconduct to the Office of Equity. "She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska". "Nobody's gonna beat her".

In similar news, a national survey conducted October 1-2 by Rasmussen found that 65 percent of likely US voters thought the Senate's handling of Kavanaugh's nomination was "poor". She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.
