Here’s the rumor around D.C. this Thursday:
Lots of chatter that Senate could leave today and not return until the lame-duck session after the elections. McConnell and Schumer still need to strike a deal on a package of executive branch and judicial nominees the WH wants confirmed. If no deal, Senate will be back next week

That would mean Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has made a deal to greenlight a whole mess of judicial nominees without roll call votes, through voice votes and unanimous consent.
Don’t. Do. It. Schumer.
Make McConnell work for everything. You would have plenty of Democratic senators willing to stick around D.C. to gum up the Senate works while your red state incumbents could go home and campaign. They need you to be fighting McConnell, particularly after the Brett Kavanaugh debacle.
That’s the message Schumer needs to hear right now. If you aren’t exhausted from calling and emailing your senators about Kavanaugh, get in touch with Schumer. On Twitter: @SenSchumer; by email; by phone: (202) 224-6542.
