Short sighted Democrat senators paying for their decisions

Every Democrat senator who voted against Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court has lost competitive races.

Despite the senate race in Montana being too close to call, it appears Republican Matt Rosendale will eke out a victory.

Incumbent Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat, voted against Kavanaugh in October following accusations against the judge for sexual assault and gang rape.

Republican Mike Braun crushed incumbent Democrat Sen. Joe Donnelly in Indiana.

Donnelly voted yes Donald Trump’s first Supreme Court nomination, Neil Gorsuch, but announced he would vote “no” on Kavanaugh.

"I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts,” Donnelly said.

“Only 113 people have ever served on the Supreme Court, and I believe that we must do our level best to protect its sanctity.”

According to the DailyWire: Donnelly also said the allegations against Kavanaugh were “disturbing and credible” and he required the FBI to investigate.

The FBI did investigate and discovered no evidence to support the allegedly credible allegations.

This pattern also happened with Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota.

She voted for Gorsuch but against Kavanaugh despite a bulk of voters in her state wanting Kavanaugh confirmed.

Heitkamp announced she would vote “no” on Kavanaugh after watching his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding the accusations against him with the sound off.

“In addition to the concerns about his past conduct, last Thursday’s hearing called into question for me Judge Kavanaugh’s current temperament, his honesty, and his impartiality. These are critical traits of any nominee to serve on the highest court in our country,” Heitkamp said in a statement at the time. “Dr. Ford gave a heartfelt, credible, and persuasive testimony. It took a great deal of courage, and it also came at the great personal cost to her. ... Our actions right now are an important signal to young girls and women across the country ... ”

Kavanaugh was not Heitkamp’s only problem, of course. In her zeal to appear sympathetic to victims of sexual assault, her campaign published an ad alleging to be a letter written by survivors.

The only dilemma was the campaign didn’t seek approval from these women to name them and use their locations.

Heitkamp was already down in the polls for her vote on Kavanaugh, but this blunder sealed her fate.

Republican Kevin Cramer defeated Heitkamp Tuesday night in North Dakota.

In Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill, the Democrat incumbent, voted against Kavanaugh.

She, too, lost to her Republican challenger, Josh Hawley.

It also seems Republican Gov. Rick Scott will defeat Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida. Nelson also voted against Kavanaugh.
