Take the vote. More hearings and more delays aren’t going to change anyone’s mind on either side.
Republican senators say the Judiciary Committee plans to vote Friday morning on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
While the GOP swiftly decided on a Friday vote to decide if Kavanaugh will be recommended to the Senate, it remains too close to be sure whether the party will be able to get the 50 votes needed to officially confirm him.
Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the second ranking-Republican, had said Thursday that the GOP conference would meet and ‘see where we are.’ They later announced that they still intended to vote Friday on Kavanaugh.
