So let him. And when he doesn’t get the 50 votes he wants, will he give up?
No, probably not. He’ll continue beating this dead horse as long as he can. Maybe up until November 2018. And this would be the greatest gift to the Democrats he can give.
Democrats only need to flip three seats from red to blue to regain control of the Senate. It’s still a tall order, considering that only eight red seats are in play this time around. But McConnell seems bound and determined to make it easier for us.
