Asked McConnell if GOP was downplaying the importance of abortion issue in midterms, and he said: : "I think that issue is playing out in different ways in different states. .. I think every one of our candidates may have a different answer to that depending upon where they are."
Replying to @mkraju
McConnell added: "The three big national issues that we're going to be addressing here that people are most concerned about, nationally, are the ones that I mentioned: inflation, crime, and open borders. That's clearly where we're going to be putting the focus."

John Thune was skeptical the Senate would return for the time it's scheduled to be in during Oct. Schumer had suggested they would return to take up defense bill.

"But that's not I'm hearing from his members," Thune said. "I'd be very surprised" if the Senate returns next month
 
Thune and Cornyn both indicate they’ll support the Senate version of the Electoral Count Act overhaul. “I’m inclined to support the Senate bill,’ Cornyn said

Trump claims “both sides need & want” a negotiated settlement between Russia & Ukraine.

That’s false. Ukraine’s govt has been resisting a negotiated end to the war because it’d likely require them to give up territory to Russia. A negotiated settlement would be a gift to Putin.

After GOP came out against his energy deal, asked Manchin if he was being naive in relying on his relationships with Rs. “I've been around long enough, you can be the hero one night and the villain the next morning. I understand that.” The CR advanced without his deal, 72-23
 
In reply to @mkraju
Hawley said he's particularly concerned about raising the threshold to force both chambers to vote on an objection.
Replying to @mkraju
“To me, that looks like – and I think it will be perceived by Republican voters as when Democrats want to object ... when they do it, it's fine. As soon as Republicans do it, we change the statute,” said Hawley, who objected to Biden’s win in PA on Jan. 6
 
Sen. Josh Hawley told me that he's "really reluctant" to back a bipartisan bill to change the Electoral Count Act
 
"I think the statute has worked for 150 years. I think it worked this past election. It is now a very well-known process that both parties have used."
