Kavanaugh bump? GOP fights for new energy as vote nears

Analysis Kavanaugh fight sharpens the stakes for midterms

Earlier Thursday, before Trump supporters arrived by the thousands, opponents took to the streets of Rochester and rallied against the president's policies.

"Hello Minnesota - great state, I'm thrilled to be back in the homeland with some fantastic, patriots - you know that", said President Trump.

However, they seem so ill-timed, with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination teetering between success and failure, that Republican Senate candidate Karin Housley reportedly made a pointed comment when she took the microphone.

Lt. Gov. Tina Smith was appointed by Minnesota's governor to succeed Franken. "Geez", she said to Trump.

Republican state Senator Karin Housley (above) is running for Franken's old US Seanate seat in Minnesota. Trump says he narrowly lost Minnesota in 2016 and hopes to turn it red in a month.

President Trump also said the confirmation process hasn't gone through because Democrats are stalling, adding he fully supports Kavanaugh. Democrats "are trying to destroy Judge Brett Kavanaugh from the very first second he was announced".

"1972 it hasn't been won I said - no look at the crowds they love it", said Trump.

After touching down at a crowd at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport before the rally, Trump briefly addressed a crowd of 100 supporters who gathered on the tarmac. He expressed hope for the future: "I don't think so!"
