The idea that the Supreme Court fight would be good for endangered Republican incumbent senators before the election is turning out to be another piece of bad conventional wisdom. If the Trump nominee vote was such a great idea, incumbents like Gardner would be standing in front of the cameras and trying to win votes by loudly proclaiming their support for Trump’s nominee.

The fact is that the situation that Trump and McConnell have set up for the Senate is completely toxic for any Republican Senator who is running for reelection and will need Democratic votes to win.

Gardner is probably a dead incumbent walking, but the idea that Senate Republicans were going to benefit from this fight is going up in flames as each Republicans runs away from questions and refuses to say where they stand on holding a vote.
