I know Alaska 'better than he does'

Trump jokes about impeachment on the campaign trail McConnell to AP: 'Nobody's going to beat" Murkowski

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado insisted it was actually the Democrats who had done themselves no favours with the vote.

Tammy Baldwin led the "messaging" effort aimed at stopping Trump's expansion of bare-bones health-insurance plans. Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, who became the only Republican to vote against him.

Republican voters are madder about the treatment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate confirmation process and are more likely to vote in November than Democrats, according to a new national survey. She almost jeopardized Kavanaugh's confirmation and did historic harm to the Senate confirmation process, but McConnell still considers her a Republican in "very good standing".

"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologise to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the awful pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Trump said at the start of a ceremonial swearing-in in the East Room of the White House on Monday.

That could put the Iowa Republican at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

On the campaign trail Trump insisted Mexico would pay for the wall.

Brett Kavanaugh took the bench with his new Supreme Court colleagues for the first time Tuesday in a jovial atmosphere that was strikingly at odds with the tension and rancor surrounding his high-court confirmation.

"Democrats want to raise your taxes, impose socialism, dismantle law enforcement, eliminate (the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency) and get rid of American borders", Trump said in a state where immigration is a particularly divisive topic because of the influx of laborers who support farming and other industries.

The Democratic Party has a close to 78 per cent chance of seizing control of the House of Representatives, where it needs to flip 23 seats to win a majority, the Five Thirty Eight election forecasting website said this week.

McConnell is also preparing for his own re-election in 2020 and, if he is successful, staying on as GOP leader. But he says the controversy over Kavanaugh could end up helping Republicans by generating more enthusiasm among GOP voters who feel he was mistreated. "I'm proud she's in the Republican conference", he added. Fifty-six percent are angry about how the Senate treated Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, including 35 percent who are very angry, Rasmussen said. "There are better ways to do it", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said in advance of the vote.

"She's about as strong as you can possibly be in Alaska". The school recently said that Kavanaugh will not be returning to teach there.

A spokesperson at the National Republican Congressional Committee, which works on House races, said it saw a 418 percent increase in online donations in the first week of October - when Kavanaugh was undergoing an FBI investigation - compared to the first week of September.
