The Senate held a crucial vote this morning on whether to advance Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. In a 51 to 49 vote, the chamber voted to invoke cloture, which prevents a Democrat filibuster. Debate is now limited to 30 hours, meaning the final vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation will take place late Saturday afternoon.
While 51votes are expected, Vice President Mike Pence is on standby to break a tie on the final vote. In an interesting development, Senator Steve Daines says he will be walking his daughter down the aisle in Montana on Saturday. He also noted in his statement that we will have a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice on Saturday!
Last night, Judge Kavanaugh reminded the American people of his reverence for the Constitution and his belief that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic. “If confirmed by the Senate to serve on the Supreme Court, I will keep an open mind in every case and always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.”
