McConnell to AP: Gender gap hurts GOP but Kavanaugh helps

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged Wednesday that Republicans have a longstanding gender gap when it comes to American women, but he stood by one key Senate woman, saying “nobody’s going to beat” Lisa Murkowski of Alaska despite her opposition to Brett Kavanaugh.

In an Associated Press interview, McConnell took issue with President Donald Trump, who has said Alaska voters “will never forgive” Murkowski and that she’ll “never recover” politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh last week.

The GOP leader told the AP he doesn’t think the acrimonious battle over confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court amid sexual misconduct allegations made the gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women any worse. But he didn’t say that was such great news.

“I don’t see how it could be much wider than it already was,” he said. “We’ve always had that,” though in general “it clearly is wider than it used to be.”
