Senate Judiciary Committee Will Vote On Kavanaugh September 20

The Senate Judiciary Committee decided Thursday morning to hold its vote on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh next week.

The committee voted 11-10 — along party lines — to delay the vote one week as several moderate senators continue to deliberate over the nominee. This is normal, but could mean Republicans are still working to get those moderates to agree to vote for Kavanaugh. Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) still publicly say they are undecided, as do the three Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota — who previously voted for Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s first nominee to the Supreme Court.

After Kavanaugh’s contentious hearings last week, Democrats filed pages and pages of written follow-up questions, which Kavanaugh submitted Wednesday night.

As the Daily Wire previously reported, Kavanaugh’s speedy confirmation is not out of the ordinary. If the Judiciary Committee votes on September 20, the full senate could vote by October 1, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) suggested back in July. That would mean Kavanaugh was confirmed in just under three months, which is in line with the confirmation processes of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Elena Kagan.
