Kavanaugh’s confirmation may come down to this one GOP Senator

Democrats orchestrated a devastating smear campaign against Judge Kavanaugh.

While the supplemental FBI background check found nothing new, Kavanaugh’s confirmation is now far from certain.

And it all may come down to just one GOP Senator.

The first vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was a nail biter.

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) shocked many Republicans when she voted with Democrats to block Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

And Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) voted yes, allowing Kavanaugh’s confirmation to move forward by a slim 51-49 margin.

But while Senator Susan Collins voted to allow Kavanaugh’s confirmation to move forward, she’s planning to announce her position on Kavanaugh in a floor speech Friday afternoon.

If she decides to vote “No” in the final vote, Collins could very well sink Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The Hill reports:

It wouldn’t be the first time Collins has supported a nomination during a procedural hurdle and then later voted against the nominee.

In a dramatic moment last year, Collins announced from the Senate floor that she would vote for Education Secretary Betsy DeVos during an initial procedural hurdle but said she could not support her on a final confirmation vote.

With Senator Murkowski voting with Democrats to block Kavanaugh’s confirmation, we can presume she’ll vote “No” on a final confirmation vote.

That means Kavanaugh can only afford to lose one more vote and be confirmed with Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote.

A “No” vote from Collins could provide political cover for Senator Manchin to oppose Kavanaugh as well.

Not to mention wildcard Senator Jeff Flake, a NeverTrumper, who’s retiring from the U.S. Senate at the end of this term.

Collins could go for a “John McCain moment” — channeling the late senator when he gave a dramatic “thumbs down” that stopped ObamaCare repeal.

If Republicans fail to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, it could be devastating in the upcoming mid-term elections.

Should Judge Kavanaugh be confirmed?

UPDATE AT 4:01 P.M. – Senator Collins announced in her speech that she intends to vote “Yes” for Kavanaugh to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Stay tuned Saturday evening at 5 P.M. for what transpires during the vote.

  1. Here is another old hag that wants to be seen in the news. This is the only way she can get attention. She is always against anything the Rep. Party is for or what the Pres. is for!!

  2. In 5 weeks the democrats will clean your clock.
    You have pissed off 3/4 of the women in the country.
    They will make you pay.

  3. Good comments. People do not realize the evillness of this man. How his money is supporting five or six left wing liberal groups/institutions. He is very dangerous. The millions thrown to Clintons, Obama (recently 81 million to the new Obama Institute) & millions to over throw Trump.

  4. Got THAT right, PS! Witness the military cemeteries that dot our great country. The last full measure of devotion…the ultimate sacrifice. We must ALWAYS remember and pay homage…????????????????????????

  5. I was simply making light of the sheer dichotomy of GOOD vs EVIL! FACT > George Soros IS Jewish but with NO religious beliefs…a former NAZI collaborator in his native Hungary who was COMPLICIT in the extermination of 6 million of his brethren in the Holocaust! FACT > George Soros has the intellectual abilities of a lowly GNAT…bent solely on the destruction of OUR DEMOCRACY and OTHER democracies worldwide! His ill-gotten billions speak ONLY of PURE EVIL! He is NO Oskar Schindler who…if he could save but just ONE life…he saves the world! And ¡BRAVA! that Trump moved our Embassy to Jerusalem! Tho I do not practice Judaism, I am of Kiev in The Ukraine extraction…proud OF it…and am NO xenophobe in OUR America! Did I shed some clarity on your misinterpretation, Nancy B?

  6. I agree she is a fake BUT not a good one This never should have happened! Paid to protest by George Soros. He is behind all of it. He should be tossed out of the Country!

  7. I’M SORRY THAT dragonFLY felt the need to associate someone’s religious beliefs, being Jewish, with their intellectual abilities. This is America and no further comment is needed.
