The four Democratic senators facing competitive races who voted against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh lost their seats in Tuesday's midterm elections, while the sole Democratic senator who supported the judge -- West Virginia's Joe Manchin -- claimed victory. Indiana's Joe Donnelly, Missouri's Claire McCaskill, North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp, and Florida's Bill Nelson all lost their re-election bids.
In North Dakota, voters who were especially concerned about the Kavanaugh proceedings -- which featured a dramatic series of late-breaking sexual assault allegations, at least two of which now seem highly questionable -- voted GOP by a two-to-one margin, according to the Associated Press.
