Fellowship of the Minds by Dr. Eowyn
Last night the GOP likely extended (at the time I scheduled this blog post) its majority in the Senate.
Key republican wins included:
- Mike Braun in Indiana
- Kevin Cramer defeated Heidi Heitkamp (who voted against Kavanaugh) in North Dakota
- Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee
- Josh Hawley defeated Claire McCaskill in Missouri
- Rick Scott in Florida
This win is very important to keep control of the appointment of judicial nominees since the Senate confirms federal judges and – most importantly – SCOTUS nominees.
The SCOTUS is leaning more conservative with the appointments of Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.
