GOP, home to Trump and tea party, decries Dems' 'mob rule'

Battle won, Brett Kavanaugh gets down to business

Senators, looking toward November's elections after a bruising Supreme Court fight, reached an agreement Thursday to leave the Capitol for the campaign trail. That would put the total of appellate judges confirmed at 29 in the last two years-a. Jamie Pedersen, who is chairman of the Washington Senate Democratic Campaign.

Moving beyond a rancorous confirmation battle that divided the country, Brett Kavanaugh got down to business as a US Supreme Court justice on Tuesday and took an active role in arguments alongside his eight new colleagues on his first day on the job.

The chamber had been scheduled to be in session through October 26.

While Democrats hold most statewide offices in the state, the political split in the Legislature is much narrower: Democrats now hold a one-seat advantage in the Senate and a two-seat advantage in the House.

Republican Rep. J.T. Wilcox, who has been involved in fundraising for Republicans running in the House where more than a dozen seats are in play, said there's no question that he's anxious because "the national wind is blowing in our face". "One, it energized the Trump base, but it also energized a lot of Republicans who weren't necessarily Trump supporters who might be looking for an alternative governing party, and what they saw on the Senate Judiciary Committee with the abandonment of the presumption of innocence, on the Judiciary Committee, which I think is always disqualifying, those Republicans said no, this is not what we're seeking". But that prospect remains unlikely, and McConnell has more judicial nominees waiting.

So far, Republicans have shown no signs of abandoning that focus. House lawmakers have spent few days here since late July, and after finalizing a series of government funding bills in late September, Republican leaders freed their members to stay home through Election Day.
