The upcoming midterms are a huge deal for Democrats.
If they don’t do well, resisting Trump will become even harder.
And to make matters worse, a major Democrat just did something crazy that ends their career before the election even happens.
A Vulnerable Missouri Democrat Ruins Her Career
Sen. Claire McCaskill is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the Senate.
Being in Missouri it’s a miracle she didn’t lose her first bid for re-election six years ago.
But she got lucky on that occasion.
And unless something crazy happens, her time is up.
Her opponent, Josh Hawley has a lot of recognition in the state.
He serves as Attorney General and touts an endorsement from President Trump.
In a state that is heavily in favor of Trump, he already has a massive boost.
And McCaskill just gave him another boost with one tweet.
On her campaign Twitter account, she tweeted out her opposition to Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

Democrats Losing Big Because Of Kavanaugh
One of the things that got many people to vote for Trump is the Supreme Court.
Once elected he immediately had a Supreme Court nomination to make.
Conservatives were very happy to see Justice Neil Gorsuch confirmed.
He has allowed multiple Trump wins to go into effect.
And now Trump has his new Supreme Court pick, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
If confirmed he will support the original interpretation of the Constitution.
That means no more unconstitutional Democrat laws staying on the books.
Places like Missouri that lean Republican, but often elect moderate Democrats in statewide elections, love his Supreme Court picks.
But if Claire McCaskill is going to oppose him, voters are going to turn on her.
This proves her as nothing more than an anti-Trump partisan.
And she isn’t alone.
Democrats in similar situations, like Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, will likely see the same downfall.
Democrat Plan Backfiring
Democrat plans to stop Kavanaugh have been backfiring.
They are using decades-old sexual assault allegations to stop him.
And while McCaskill says that isn’t her reason, it doesn’t matter to voters.
Republicans are furious at the way the allegations are being handled.
Kavanaugh’s accuser isn’t even willing to speak out about it.
She doesn’t even need to go public.
The Senate is offering her private testimony.
But she is refusing, and Democrats are still pushing her claims.
Even some Democrats doubt the allegations because of this.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is the latest to express doubt.
And she’s the one who caused the allegations to go public.
If even Feinstein isn’t sure about them, something is truly wrong.
But thankfully, in states like Missouri, they have an alternative to Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh.
Josh Hawley supports confirming Judge Kavanaugh immediately.
He supports President Trump’s agenda, including his Supreme Court nominees.
And this is giving him a big boost, with polls showing him multiple points ahead of McCaskill.
Do you think Claire McCaskill should lose to Josh Hawley?
