Senate leaders from both sides of the aisle had their election 2018 messaging handy on Wednesday after the chamber’s weekly caucus lunches. Senate Republicans — looking to ride the momentum of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation into the November midterm elections — criticized the “angry mobs and intimidation tactics” that protesters employed last week. Meanwhile, Democrats focused on the issue of health care, accusing Republicans of putting the interest of insurance companies ahead of the American public.
