Roberts refers ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to federal judges

The big question, they agree, is whether conservative enthusiasm will last until November 6 or fade away, victim to the historic pattern of midterm congressional losses by the party holding the White House and the ever-changing parade of distracting controversies prevalent under Trump. Trump used the ceremony as a platform to decry the "campaign of political and personal destruction" waged against Kavanaugh.

Murkowski, who isn't up for re-election until 2022, tells reporters that her "barometer is not necessarily what the president says but what the people of Alaska say".

According to one of the latest polls out of the state, which was conducted before Manchin voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the senator was beating his opponent by eight points.

"Look, if they want to take away people's health insurance and that's what they're campaigning on for the next several weeks, I think it's a losing strategy", said Gardner, who heads the Senate GOP's campaign organization.

"Roberts says he received the ethics complaints beginning September 20th, but did not act on referrals until today", Baier added. But the Republican Party had an 80 per cent chance of retaining its majority in the Senate.

"Surely, they must have a better answer than snatching away one of the remaining options that some Americans still prefer to anything Democrats have been able to come up", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said before the vote.

At his Iowa event, Trump said a Democratic takeover of Congress could allow Democrats to impeach Kavanaugh, a prospect some Democrats have raised.

The 15 complaints, related to statements Kavanaugh made during his Senate confirmation hearings, were initially filed with the federal appeals court in Washington, where Kavanaugh served for the last 12 years before his confirmation Saturday to the Supreme Court.

The Kentucky Republican told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that Democratic threats to investigate President Donald Trump's finances and businesses would "help the president get re-elected" in 2020.

"I wish you could get a little bit more conservative", Trump said to King, who was in attendance at the rally.

Republicans are madder about the Kavanaugh controversy than Democrats are and more determined to vote in the upcoming elections because of it. "Nobody's going to beat her", he said. The school recently said that Kavanaugh will not be returning to teach there.

At the mention of Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee and the lawmaker whom Trump has accused of leaking to the media Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, the crowd here chanted "lock her up!" - a phrase that previously had been reserved for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
