(Worthy News) - For Senate Republicans, the rejection of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, could foment a political disaster in the midterm elections.

Failure to deliver on this vital issue to the GOP base could depress voter turnout and jeopardize the party’s congressional majorities.
