Kavanaugh Vote Likely This Weekend
- New York 10/05/2018 by Linda Perry (WBAI)

A Divided Senate Judicicary Committee pushed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through procedural hurdles with a 51 to 49 vote. Under Senate rules after the cloture vote the Senate has 30 hours to bring debate to a close. The vote now stops Democrats from delaying the full Senate vote further than the 30 hours.

Republicans are clinging to a two vote majority. One Republican Lisa Mukowski of Alaska voted no on sending the nomination to the full Senate. She was one of the four Senators who had not revealed their decisions until today, Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Jeff Flake of Arizona voted yes, so did Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Please click above for more.
