Roberts refers complaints about Kavanaugh to federal judges in Colorado

Brett Kavanaugh is the first member of the Supreme Court to hire an all-female class of law clerks

The GOP's problem in the House is the same as the Democrats' problem in the Senate - the map.

Two of the complaints were filed by the Democratic Coalition, a political action group, the website reported.

Seventeen of the races on the ballot are for open seats with no incumbent: 14 in the House and three in the Senate.

From left, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Sen. Men are more evenly split, with 30 percent more likely to back Republicans, while 25 percent are more likely to back Democrats.

Independent pollster Stuart Elway called August's primary results "a wakeup call for the Republicans".

"Vote, your life depends on it!", "Every vote, every election, every account", proclaimed placards brandished by demonstrators.

This is the first time Trump has received net positive ratings on the economy in Post-ABC polls.

In the long run, to prevent one party controlling the Supreme Court decade after decade, to prevent politically strategic retirement, and to even out presidential opportunities to appoint justices to the Court, I have long favored an additional amendment providing for 18-year or 24-year terms for Supreme Court Justices. Consequently, Doctor Blasey Ford may have never registered some of the details of her attack that the Republican senate is now basing its questioning upon. More significantly, 77 percent of Democrats are now saying that they are "very motivated" to vote, compared to only 68 percent of Republicans - a bad sign considering other recent surveys showing Democrats with a marked lead over Republicans in a number of key districts in the House of Representatives.

Senate Democrats up for reelection in red states feared they could be kept in Washington while their Republican challengers ran free in their respective states.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", he said at the ceremony in the ornate White House East Room.

"I'd be foolish and dishonest if I didn't say this is a year where we've got more obstacles", he said.

While numerous judges were approved with bipartisan support, nearly half were confirmed on mostly party-line votes.

While the Senate outlook is increasingly bright for Republicans, the House looks nearly guaranteed to flip to the Democrats next month. Although so much progress regarding procuring justice for sexual assault victims has occurred through the #MeToo movement, with it came vitriol of victim blaming, and accusations of malicious lying; sprinkled with casual misogyny on top for good measure.

Registered voters say they prefer the Democratic candidate for the House over the Republican candidate by 11 percentage points-53 percent to 42 percent. Two other women have also contacted the senate with allegations of sexual misconduct. That is slightly lower than in August, when the Democratic advantage was 14 points.

After an extra Federal Bureau of Investigation probe - which media reports say was drastically curtailed by the White House - also found nothing new, Kavanaugh was finally voted into the coveted post. Kavanaugh strenuously denied the allegations and none of the witnesses the women said would verify their claims did so.
