Kavanaugh sworn in again during ceremonial event at White House

Kavanaugh to attend White House event as elections loom

On a positive note for his party, he said he expects the Kavanaugh confirmation fight and approval to provide an "adrenaline shot" of GOP enthusiasm at the polls.

As a Supreme Court Justice, Kavanaugh is not subject to the same public scrutiny for misconduct claims as other government officials.

Even before the confirmation, Kavanaugh's opponents had a comeback line, printed on the back of jackets they wore to the Capitol: "November is coming".

Senate Democrats took aim at President Trump's expansion of short-term health care plans Wednesday, forcing a vote on a proposal to roll back the administration's plan to allow insurers to sell low-priced, reduced-benefit plans. Next to Arizona, which Democrats appear to be losing, Nevada could still offer a pickup opportunity for Dems to offset a loss in somewhere like North Dakota or Montana. That's the state Trump won by 36 percentage points against Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. According to private polling within the GOP, Heitkamp has been down by double-digits for weeks and this was even before her eventual decision to vote against Kavanaugh's appointment despite her constituents tending to favor his confirmation.

Polls have put her Republican opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, comfortably ahead.

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the start of a ceremonial swearing-in in the East Room of the White House on Monday. In each state, Republicans are now just as likely as Democrats to say they are extremely interested - erasing an edge Democrats had in several states last month.

The ethics complaints have still followed Kavanaugh, however, despite the Senate's 50-48 vote to confirm him Saturday after one of the ugliest, most contentious judicial confirmation processes ever.

Then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who led the campaign to demonize Romney, later justified his lies to CNN: "Romney didn't win, did he?"
