re: #176 Mike Lamb

He’s actually done that more that once. And I’m pretty sure McConnell kept them in session anyways.

Yes he has. So you’re left with this situation:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) suggested Friday that he could keep lawmakers in Washington until the end of October if Democrats seek to slow or block the confirmation of President Trump’s judicial nominees.

Stay and oppose them and bring up their flaws, or go campaign but give the Republicans a super-majority while you’re out campaigning.

Couple that with McConnell removing the blue slip process they abused during the Obama Presidency, and there’s not a whole lot the minority party can do.

With the worst Senate map in a century, Democrats were able to hold losses to two seats. Imagine what might have happened without the ability to campaign and meet constituents.

McConnell was going to get his judges in any case. How would Schumer stop that?
