They're accusing Democrats of condoning "mob rule" - a phrase that's popped up in GOP rhetoric since raucous demonstrators opposing Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination harangued Republicans at the Capitol last week. Manweller, who was sacked from his professor position at Central Washington University in August following an outside investigation into alleged inappropriate conduct, has denied the allegations but has said he will finish his term but not serve another if re-elected next month.

Henderson said in a press release earlier this month that the misconduct claims were filed after Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings, which began on September 4. Of course, the poll also found that partisans on both sides had a higher disapproval of how the opposing party handled the process than they do of their own party. Like it or not, we're nearly certainly stuck with Kavanaugh.

Though Kavanaugh had been sworn in on Saturday, Trump hosted a glittering East Room ceremonial swearing-in for him Monday night.

"Let's use this week to give us all that extra energy that we know we have to remember that the bottom line is that they may have the power right now but we need to take it back", said Senator Kamala Harris of California.

Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat running in West Virginia, which Trump won by 46 points, said he expected McConnell would demand a lot in return for letting Democrats go.

Republicans have seen a bump in polling since Kavanaugh' confirmation. Removal of a Supreme Court justice is nearly unthinkable - it would require 67 votes in the Senate, meaning it would be a massive bipartisan effort over the most polarizing issue there is. The Post cited sources who said the complaints addressed Kavanaugh's alleged dishonesty and a lack of judicial temperament.

Asked about Heitkamp missing votes to campaign, her spokeswoman Abigail McDonough took a shot at the House, where her GOP opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, serves.

"An even greater conflagration may be coming", says Charlie Savage in the New York Times. "The world got to see close up how ugly it can be when you go too far", he's quoted as saying. Today, those stars tell a different story.

Positive views of Kavanaugh among Republicans have grown at the same time, increasing 18 points from 62% in August to 80% now. "I think you're going to see a lot of things happen on November 6 that would not have happened before", Trump said Monday as he departed for an event in Florida.

The whole country - and much of the rest of the world - watched early this month as the nomination of Kavanaugh by President Donald Trump was opposed by a woman who testified that she was sexually assaulted by the nominee when he was a teenager in 1972.
