Both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have been at odds over finishing up nominees, with neither side willing to budge much following the grueling confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Only 50 percent of millenials made it to the polls in 2016, and only 37 percent of those voters elected the eventual presidential victor, Donald Trump. Two other women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct dating to the 1980s.

For some students, the allegations against Kavanaugh, including crossing a line of sexual impropriety while drunk at social gatherings, parallel situations faced by survivors of sexual assault on campus.

"Well, I see right now the Republicans getting a huge bump out of the Kavanaugh hearings". To her or to anyone.

"If I'm chairman next year, I'm going to remember this", Graham said, referring to Democrats' comments and actions during the hearings. "As I have often emphasized, it is essential that individuals who suffer from pre-existing conditions are covered".

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. "A brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats using the Democrats' lawyers, and now they want to impeach him".

President Trump said during his presidential campaign that he would only appoint pro-life judges to the court.

While Trump apologized on behalf of the nation for "the awful pain and suffering" Kavanaugh and his family had experienced and declared him "proven innocent", the new justice assured Americans that he would be fair and was taking the job with "no bitterness".

The fight over Kavanaugh's confirmation became particularly ugly with Kavanaugh, Ford, and potential witnesses on all sides, and Senators receiving death threats. All were filed originally with Kavanaugh's old court, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, the latest last Wednesday, while the battle over his confirmation was still under way. "My goal is to be a great Justice for all Americans and for all of America".
