While the House has recessed until after the mid-term elections on Nov. 6, the Senate is scheduled to remain in session through the fourth week of October. Senate Republicans are expected to use the time remaining to confirm more Judicial and Administration nominees. It is possible that Democrats will strike a deal with Republicans to agree to confirm a group of nominees in exchange for the Senate going into recess earlier, which will allow vulnerable Democratic senators in red states more time to campaign. The “lame duck” session of the House is set to begin on Nov. 13.
