President Donald Trump’s selection of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as his second Supreme Court nominee could be a consequential moment for the midterm elections. Republicans hope a confirmation battle will galvanize voters on the right, while Democrats are balancing their own energized liberal base against the political pressure on some red-state Democrats to side with Trump.
"What Does the Supreme Court Mean for the Midterm Elections? Here Are 2 Hints" is from the July 10, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns and narrated by Kristi Burns.
