Republicans enjoy 'Brett boost' after Supreme Court win dents Democrats' poll surge

Protestors outside the Supreme Court ahead of Justice Kavanaugh's official swearing-in

Mr Kavanaugh denied the allegations and during a Senate hearing on September 27 accused Democrats of an "orchestrated political hit".

Kavanaugh was "caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats", Trump said as he left the White House earlier in the day for a trip to Florida.

Kavanaugh was scheduled to emerge on Tuesday morning from behind the courtroom's red velvet curtains and take his seat alongside his eight colleagues. Every sitting member of the Supreme Court was present at the ceremony. With police standing by, a small group of protesters gathered outside the courthouse, holding signs saying "Shame" and "He sits on a throne of lies".

Fifty-two percent said they believed the women versus 38 percent who said found Kavanaugh most credible. It capped a fight that seized the national conversation after claims emerged that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted women three decades ago. Murkowski voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination and "present" on the final vote.

Here's the first question Kavanaugh asked the counsel for Denard Stokeling, referencing the 2010 case Johnson v.

While their chances in the House are still seen as good, Republicans are feeling better about the upper chamber. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court past year. "And with that, I must state that, you sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent".

"And that troubles me greatly". She later went public after reporters started trying to contact her. Kavanaugh staunchly denied Ford's accusation.

He later wrote in a newspaper opinion piece that he regretted some of his comments.

"To the men and women of the United States Capitol Police and all the other law enforcement officers who kept members, staff and citizens safe, even in extremely hard and often hostile circumstances, we really can't thank them enough", he said in his opening remarks on the Senate floor. "It is not a partisan or political institution", said Kavanaugh, who was to take up his seat on the nine-member bench on October 9.

After Murkowski came out in opposition to Kavanaugh last week, Trump told The Washington Post over the weekend that she would "never recover" and that "the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did".

President Donald Trump traveled to Council Bluffs, Iowa Tuesday to boost Republican candidates and roll out new summer fuel standards.

The appeals were brought by an environmental group and companies that supported the rule, which had limited hydrofluorocarbons used in a variety of products including spray cans and air conditioners.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been sworn in -again - at an event at the White House, but not before President Donald Trump slammed Kavanaugh's opponents for a "campaign of personal destruction".

The two-vote margin of victory in the Senate made it the closest Supreme Court confirmation vote since 1881 - and by far the most contentious since Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Brett Kavanaugh rose beyond the rancor of his confirmation battle on his first day as a Supreme Court justice on October 9, asking several questions during oral arguments alongside a collegial group of fellow justices.

Following Benintendi's hit, the Red Sox extended the lead on a single to left by Steve Pearce off Chad Green . Luke Voit walked on four pitches, and Kimbrel hit Neil Walker on a leg with his next pitch, forcing in a run.


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.
