Kavanaugh Creeps Closer to Confirmation by Clinching Cloture Vote

Today was an extremely important one in the saga of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

After weeks of debate, and a whole slew of unverified allegations against him, Kavanaugh has secured a final vote for his nomination by passing the cloture vote this morning.

The Senate passed its motion to vote on cloture, setting up a weekend vote to confirm President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The Senate voted to pass its motion to cloture on Friday morning, with a vote tally of 51-49, featuring overwhelming Republican support.

Now that Senate passed its cloture motion, the final vote on confirmation will sometime on Saturday.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who is one of the vital swing Republicans on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, said that she will vote yes on the motion to pass cloture and that she will reveal her vote whether to confirm Kavanaugh later Friday afternoon. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), another key vote, voted yes on the motion to cloture. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) voted no on the motion to cloture.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a vulnerable Senate Democrat, voted yes on the motion to cloture and might signal that he might vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Over the course of the next 24 hours, it is expected that leftist resistance to the nomination will peak…which certainly raises the question of safety and decorum in the nation’s capital.

We have already been forced to endure the ridiculous antics of the radical left all across The Beltway, with celebrities being symbolically arrested at the Capitol itself, and Mitch McConnell being confronted with PBR-chugging “beer lovers”.  

What chaos the left could bring over the course of the next 24 hours remains to be seen.
