The Senate voted in the last hour to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to a seat on the Supreme Court.
The final vote was 50-48. Lisa Murkowski didn’t cast a no vote, because Senator Steve Daines of Montana, a yes vote, was at his daughter’s wedding. Since the tally was at 50 if neither voted, they made a “paired vote” agreement to make it a wash.
We will add to this post if events dictate as the day wears on. There were protests underway in and around the Capitol building throughout the vote.
