"Republicans fear political fallout from Kavanaugh turmoil"

NEW YORK ó Whether or not Republicans ultimately confirm President Donald Trumpís Supreme Court nominee, some on the front lines of the GOPís midterm battlefield fear the party may have already lost.

In the days after a divided nation watched Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford deliver conflicting stories about what happened when they were teenagers, Republican campaign operatives acknowledged this is not the fight they wanted six weeks before Election Day.

Should they give Kavanaugh a lifetime appointment to the nationís highest court after Fordís powerful testimony about sexual assault, Republicans risk enraging the women they need to preserve their House majority. Vote him down, they risk enraging the partyís defiant political base.

In swing state New Hampshire, former Republican Party chair Jennifer Horn said Republicans are ďgrossly underestimating the damage that would be doneĒ at the ballot box in the short and long term should they confirm Kavanaugh.
