Capitol Hill is buzzing and has been buzzing for the last three weeks. Not too long ago, the GOP was at odds with much of American when Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was accused of sexual harassment by multiple women. The hearings that followed these accusations did little to calm tension in the nation’s capital. A few weeks removed from these hearings, the topic is still involved in many midterm elections across the country. Most recently, the topic came up in a debate between two California Senate nominees, Dianne Feinstein and Kevin De León.
During this week’s debate between the incumbent, Feinstein and the challenger, De León, the incumbent was asked about the recent hearings. The Senator from California responded by saying that she would “be in favor of opening up the allegations.” This comes as no surprised as many Democratic members involved with the hearings walked out at certain points. It’s unclear whether there are plans to do this already in the works or if it’s just a hope of Feinstein’s. In any matter, there may be a major political shift if Feinstein’s party regains control on Capitol Hill. We’ll all see how it plays out on November 6th when polls open.
