Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Friday night that the fight over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was a “wake up call” ahead of the November midterm elections.
“It’s a wake up call to why it’s important to hold the Senate. You know the Senate’s in the personnel business,” McConnell told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham.
McConnell’s comments come as the Senate is poised to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Saturday.
The expected vote will give Republicans their second Supreme Court victory in as many years and a significant win roughly a month before the midterm election.
