This is all Obamacare karma dontcha know. The political wheel keeps turning though.
(From The Hill)
The Hill tracked down three Democratic senators who are seeking reelection in November in states Trump carried in 2016 – Sens. Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Bill Nelson (Fla.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.). How will they vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination? Each went out of their way to avoid reporters’ questions but one Democratic senator was blunt:
“We have to lower the expectations of our base. We can’t defeat the nominee on our own.” – a Democratic senator who requested anonymity.
Instead, the goal of the Democrats, according to reporting by The Hill’s Alexander Bolton, is to “inflict as much political damage on the GOP as possible ahead of the November midterm elections.”
