With the addition of 15 judges, Trump has appointed 29 appeals court judges, which is far more than any other president since the creation of the regional circuit court system in 1891, The New York Times reported.

If Republicans do gain additional seats in the Senate, any contentious legislation passed in the House would likely not be passed in the Senate.

Democrats counter that the Kavanaugh fallout has enraged many women voters upset with the way the Senate confirmation battle turned out, likely increasing Democratic turnout in November and threatening Republican control of the House of Representatives.

Brett Kavanagh of Louisville, Kentucky, shares the same name as the new Supreme Court Justice but not the same spelling.

Democrats need a gain of 23 seats to retake the House and a net pickup of two seats to reclaim a majority in the Senate.

"Trump and McConnell are confirming conservative judges at a breakneck pace in what's sure to be Trump's most enduring legacy", said Brian Fallon, who worked for Hillary Clinton and the Obama Justice Department, and has tried to spur Democrats to fight harder to block President Trump's nominees. If "the girl" gets a softer treatment than a man would get for perjured testimony, then there is no equality under the law, and I insist that men and women be treated equally under all circumstances.

Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon, heading up his caucus' campaign efforts, said with three competitive congressional races that overlap with several legislative districts there's "even more voter enthusiasm for showing up and casting their ballots". When lawmakers return the following week, the nation will know whether Republicans were able to retain their control of both chambers for next year.

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted.

"It's not about me right now, it's about individual races", he said. They only "seek investigations ... of the public statements he has made as a nominee to the Supreme Court", Henderson said in a statement.
