Kavanaugh Effect: GOP Fundraising Up 500 Percent in Past Few Weeks

Kavanaugh Effect: GOP Fundraising Up 500 Percent in Past Few Weeks

The administration drew criticism for a similar move last year from advocates who said the downtime would hinder efforts to sign people up for coverage, but the administration counters that maintenance downtime happens every year and is created to occur during the slowest periods on the site.

In a press release on the day of the vote, Mike Espy, Hyde-Smith's Democratic opponent in November's U.S. Senate special election, accused her of ignoring the sexual assault allegations in order to confirm "a judge with partisan ideals she agrees with". Mr Trump has begun an intensive campaign tour created to make the midterms a referendum on his presidency in the hope of maintaining swing seats. Democrats point to the FBI's rather thin investigation of the charges against Kavanaugh, a process dictated by the White House.

In key battlegrounds across America, Republican leaders are warning voters to expect more political theater if they return Democrats to power next month. "I'm proud she's in the Republican conference", he added.

Kavanaugh is expected to push the court further to the right as he is replacing Kennedy, a conservative who sometimes voted with the liberal justices on key social issues such as abortion and gay rights.

A Democratic measure aimed at eliminating short-term health care plans that don't cover pre-existing conditions failed in the Senate on Wednesday in a tied vote of 50-50. "This business of presidential harassment may or may not be quite the victor they think it is".

The First Lady's remarks come amid the recent furore surrounding Donald Trump's nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. He also noted that McConnell "permitted her to keep her committee assignments" after she ran a write-in campaign against the more conservative GOP nominee in 2010. The complaints deal with statements Kavanaugh made during his confirmation hearings and were initially filed with the D.C. Circuit, where Kavanaugh served for 12 years before joining the high court.

McConnell said he found Christine Blasey Ford's account of her sexual assault "convincing" but noted that there had been no corroboration that her assailant was Kavanaugh. She voted "present" in the actual confirmation vote.

The public nature of a case previous year involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual.

Before Tuesday's arguments, the justices turned aside appeals of a 2017 ruling authored by Kavanaugh while on the lower court striking down a 2015 environmental rule imposed under Democratic former President Barack Obama regulating a potent greenhouse gas linked to climate change.

Trump told the crowd he is "100 percent" certain that Feinstein "leaked" Ford's name, which led to the public testimony of Ford and Kavanaugh's denial of her allegation, then he backtracked to he was "99 percent" certainty, saying he didn't want to get sued.
