What happens if a Democratic House tries to impeach Kavanaugh? Love-McAdams race now a ‘toss-up.’ Sessions visits Utah to pitch Project Safe Neighborhood.

Happy Thursday. The Senate has now received the FBI probe of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and is set to vote tomorrow on his confirmation. There are a few swing votes we’re not yet sure where they’ll go, but with a GOP majority it’s likely Kavanaugh will take a seat on the high court next week. So what happens if the Democrats take the House in the midterm elections? There’s a chance the newest justice could be impeached. [Politico]
