Kavanaugh Committee Vote Scheduled for Friday, First Senate Floor Vote Saturday

Published

on

In a move that signals GOP confidence in Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Republicans plan to hold a Judiciary Committee vote Friday morning and a Senate floor test vote on Saturday, according to multiple reports.

In a tense day of testimony in front of the Committee, Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct stemming from an alleged incident more than 36 years ago. Kavanaugh then defiantly testified himself, defending his reputation from accusations that have not been corroborated by any alleged witnesses.

AsĀ Big League PoliticsĀ reported, there are eight Republican Senators who have not committed to voting “yes” on Kavanaugh.

With a showdown between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford slated for Thursday, several alleged Republican senators have still not committed to voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

Here is the list:

  • Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)

  • Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.)

  • Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.)

  • Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)

  • Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.)

  • Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.)

  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)

  • Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.)

Sasse indignantly questioned his Democrat colleagues during the Thursday’s hearing, expressing malcontent with how Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) handled Ford’s accusations. His defense of Kavanaugh signifies that he will vote in favor of the nominee.

Just before publication, Corker announced that he, too will vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
