There are plenty of reasons for conservatives to be upset with Mitch McConnell over things he’s done or not done over the years. There’s no debate that the Senate has been useless on issues like immigration and spending. However, Mitch got the job done in epic fashion when it came to confirming Justice Gorsuch and so far he’s been great when it comes to getting Brett Kavanaugh through.
He hasn’t backed down at all and he clearly understands that this whole effort to smear him is a complete sham.
On Wednesday, Mitch reminded everyone that he’s not going to back down from this fight.
From The Daily Caller:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scolded protesters Wednesday after weeks of harassment towards Republican members of the Senate for not actively opposing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“Sometimes this intimidation campaign [against Kavanaugh’s confirmation] has been aimed at the nominee … and when that didn’t work, then the far left tried to bully and intimidate members of this body — Republican United States senators,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. “They’ve tried to bully and intimidate us.”
“One of our colleagues and his family were effectively run out of a restaurant in recent days by these people,” the Kentucky senator continued. “Another reported having protesters physically block his car door, and some have seen organized far left protesters camp out at their homes.”

Democrats can yell and scream all they want but it’s not going to change the fact they lost the election in 2016 and it’s not going to change the fact they don’t have a message the American people are interested in.
Props to Mitch on this one and it really looks like he’ll be able to get this confirmation to happen.
