Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell uttered four words no Senator wants to hear: summer recess is canceled. 

According to Town Hall:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has canceled the August recess. There's just too much work to do, he told his colleagues. They need to make headway on both legislation on key congressional races ahead of the midterms.
  Before McConnell made it official, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) weighed in on the Republicans' "nefarious plot."
  This is a power move from Senator McConnell. He not only keeps the Senate in session to do its job and confirm nominees for Trump, but it keeps Democrats from campaigning because they have to be in Washington.
