Republicans can “kiss the midterms goodbye” if they don’t get Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh confirmed, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said Monday on his radio show.

“If the Republicans do not get this vote taken and have Kavanaugh confirmed, you can kiss the midterms goodbye,” Limbaugh told his listeners. “You can kiss goodbye holding the House and you can kiss goodbye holding the Senate.

“If you guys don’t conduct this vote in defiance of all this and if [lawyer Michael] Avenatti gets one foot in the door to a Senate committee to start telling his story, then you can kind of kiss goodbye Republican chances in the midterms in November,” he continued. 

Kavanaugh faces two allegations of sexual misconduct, including one published hours after arrangements were finally locked in for a Senate hearing on Thursday with his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Deborah Ramirez, one of Kavanaugh’s classmates at Yale University, told the New Yorker she remembers Kavanaugh exposing himself to her at a dorm party and thrusting his penis into her face.

Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, on the same day, claimed he was representing another woman with “credible information” on Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has denied both claims and made clear Monday he intends to defend himself at the hearing.

"There is now a frenzy to come up with something — anything — that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring," Kavanaugh said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. The last-minute character assassination will not succeed," he wrote.
