'Team player' Brett Kavanaugh sworn in again as US Supreme Court Justice

Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh hugs his wife Ashley after the ceremony

Republicans have pulled even with Democrats in the generic congressional midterms poll for just the second time since weekly tracking started by Rasmussen Reports in May.

Fresh off the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, questions arose about what Republicans might do if another vacancy opens on the court in 2020 - and Republican leadership doesn't agree on what they'd do in that situation.

Trump said in 2016 that he'd release his tax returns after the IRS was done auditing them, and White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters last week that "a number of his taxes are still under audit".

"Only one side was happy to play host to this toxic fringe behavior", McConnell said.

"Holding senators in Washington for days in order to do one 15-minute vote doesn't make much sense", Sen.

He added: "We will not let mob behavior drown out all the Americans who want to legitimately participate in the policy-making process".

As well, there is a chance to save the coral reefs with 1.5 C warming, as opposed to no chance at 2 C, according to the report. On top of this, Trump's America wants to dump spending on health, public education, culture and poverty programs.

A handful of races have seen significant spending by outside groups, including the 30th District, where Democrat Claire Wilson seeks to oust Republican incumbent Sen.

Maine Senator Susan Collins, who recently made waves as the deciding vote to confirm Kavanaugh, was the only Republican to buck party and vote to overturn the expansion. Kavanaugh strenuously denied the allegations and none of the witnesses the women said would verify their claims did so.

The GOP rhetorical offensive also represents a flipping of the recent script, in which Democrats have accused Trump of intensifying divisions with nationalistic and at times racist appeals to his conservative base and personal attacks on political enemies.

Now, with Kavanaugh on the bench, Democrats seem to be the angry ones.

McConnell described demonstrators "literally storming the steps" of the Capitol, and pointedly noted that these activities followed last year's shooting of GOP lawmakers at a morning baseball practice. "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

But Republican Sen. Richard Shelby said that health care may not be as much of a victor as Democrats think, noting that some Senate races have begun trending in the GOP's direction since the Kavanaugh fight.
