All Rise: Justice Kavanaugh

Jordan Kirkland - October 5th, 2018

Following a 51 to 49 vote that saw one Republican and one Democrat cross party lines, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is all but confirmed to be the next justice on the highest court in the U.S.

Following lengthy hearings and an week-long FBI investigation over sexual misconduct allegations, Kavanaugh received critical swing votes from three Senators who were on-the-fence for nominating him.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), said they'd vote "yes" tomorrow on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The vote is set for 4:52 p.m. tomorrow.

 

The West Virginia Senator, a Democrat who was the final deciding vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation, said in a statement that he posted to Twitter that he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

 

 

Manchin's decision to confirm Kavanaugh was met with intense criticism. As he spoke to reporters after posting his tweet, protesters chanted "shame" repeatedly.
