Democrats are waging an effective campaign to retake Senate control, so much so President Donald Trump has warned GOP fundraisers the Senate majority is squarely in the balance in the finals days of the election.
Republicans on Saturday blocked Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s attempt during a rare weekend session to force consideration of a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief bill as the GOP rushed ahead with its effort to confirm right-wing judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court just before the November election.
Sen. Dick Durbin asked Judge Amy Coney Barrett if the president had the authority to deny the right to vote based on race. Barrett cited the 15th Amendment but did not outright say that the president was not allowed to do so.
Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are "uncertain right now" about the direction in which they want to take the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, Sen. John Kennedy said Tuesday.
