Chief Justice John Roberts referred judicial misconduct complaints about newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Colorado, the Washington Post reported Wednesday afternoon. And with Republicans likely to hold the Senate next year, that number is only going to continue to grow.

One Republican observer said he thought as many as 20 or 21 of the 25 Republican districts that went for Hillary Clinton a year ago could well flip to the Democrats, producing a large Democratic House wave.

A new survey reveals that Democrats may actually be more motivated to vote because of Kavanaugh than Republicans.

That led to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY making a deal with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky to confirm the judges and allow for a recess, in order for candidates up for re-election to hit the campaign trail, Politico reported.

"It's not about me right now, it's about individual races", he said.

"What I think this has done for us is provide the kind of adrenaline shot that we had not been able to figure out how to achieve in any other way".

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted.
