The organizers of the march of Chicago, which is held under the slogan "let us Walk up to the polls" (#MarchToThePolls), have planned this gathering a few weeks before the parliamentary elections in mid-term, during which the democratic Party hopes to regain control of the House of representatives to the republicans.

"Through this deal", Hogue continued, "Democrats allowed Mitch McConnell and Republicans in Congress to fast track 15 more of Donald Trump's nominees, including David Porter and Mark Norris, whose biased views and extreme anti-choice records indicate they will shape our country in Donald Trump's brutal image for decades to come".

Meanwhile, Senior Republicans have been reaching out to big donors.

"I was not appointed to serve one party or one interest, but to serve one nation", Kavanaugh said Monday night during his ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.

"Senate Democrats must want to get out of Washington to campaign", said Sen.

Among voters who prefer Democratic candidates for the House, 81 percent say they are certain to vote, up from 60 percent in 2014. He said Kavanaugh had been found "innocent" of the charges against him, even though the senators came to no such determination.

Ethics complaints filed against Justice Brett Kavanaugh ahead of his Supreme Court confirmation are being transferred to another judicial circuit, BuzzFeed News reported Wednesday.

Republicans have seen a bump in polling since Kavanaugh' confirmation. Women as a whole support an investigation 58 percent to 37 percent, while men are almost evenly split on that matter, with 47 percent supporting an investigation and 49 percent opposing it.

Democrats claim he displayed excessive anger and was too partisan in defending himself against 11th hour allegations by three women who claimed he sexually assaulted them during high school and college freshmen parties.

University of Virginia analyst Kyle Kondik told VOA the furor over Kavanaugh and allegations of sexual misconduct when he was a teenager, which he denied, could be "weaponized" by Republican Senate candidates looking to defeat Democratic incumbents in Republican-leaning states. Doug Ericksen's district and the open seat in the 26th, where Democrat Emily Randall and Republican Marty McClendon are vying to replace Angel. Significantly more women think the committee's actions were deficient, 56 percent vs. 43 percent.

The justices privately made the decision not to hear the appeals by an environmental group and companies that supported the regulation before Kavanaugh's confirmation. Gorsuch was confirmed by the Senate with a 54-45 vote months later. On leaving the Supreme Court, such a removed Justice may choose to accept and fill any vacant Article III judgeship, without further nomination to that particular judgeship by the President and without the advice and consent of the Senate. Today, with that GOP House majority at risk and some close Senate races that will determine who has control of that chamber in January, a 77 percent majority of registered voters say they are certain to vote next month or have already voted, up from a 65 percent majority in Post-ABC polls in October 2014. The margin of sampling error for both the results overall and the sample registered voters of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
