The Votes on Kavanaugh in the Senate

The Senate just voted on whether to proceed with a confirmation vote for Judge Kavanaugh. This vote is strictly procedural and was just decided at fifty-one to forty-nine to proceed. Now, the question remains are there enough votes to confirm Kavanaugh as early as tomorrow.

As to votes pretty much guaranteed, Senator Mitch McConnell has forty-eight senators on the “yes” side. If by any chance there is a tie, then Vice President Mike Pence will be the tie breaker and we know how he will vote.

On a historical note, a Vice President voting for a tie breaker has never been done neither on the Supreme Court or federal level.

This post will be updated as a list of who voted to proceed becomes available.

Why are confirmation hearings still taking place? 100,000 pages were not provided and President Trump under the veil of Executive Privilege has prevented access to even more documents.
