The most popular conservative talk radio host in America gave the GOP an ultimatum Monday, telling them to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or lose the midterms.
“If the Republicans do not get this vote taken and have Kavanaugh confirmed, you can kiss the midterms goodbye,” said Rush Limbaugh. “You can kiss goodbye holding the House and you can kiss goodbye holding the Senate.”
Ever the realist, Limbaugh blasted the weak-kneed GOP Senate.
Because whatever the Democrats think of their base, the one thing I know that if you guys fold on this and cave and keep bending over backwards… You’ve done that enough. You’ve demonstrated that you don’t hate women. You’ve demonstrated that you’re open minded. You’ve demonstrated that you’re gonna hear from her. You’re never gonna hear from her! She’s never gonna show up. She’s not telling a story that can be verified, Senator Grassley. She’s not gonna show up. If you guys don’t conduct this vote in defiance of all this and if Avenatti gets one foot in the door to a Senate committee to start telling his story, then you can kind of kiss good-bye Republican chances in the midterms in November. Because people are gonna logically say, “What good does it do?”
The establishment GOP must take a stand behind Kavanaugh, who defiantly stated Monday afternoon that he will not fold in the face of leftist smears.
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” Kavanaugh said. “The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed.”
