BREAKING: Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination advances to final vote – but key Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski votes ‘no’

The success of this procedural motion, which required a simple majority to pass, starts the clock on up to 30 hours of debate around the embattled nominee before a final roll call vote, which is currently expected to take place on Saturday. It doesn’t guarantee Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

A key senator, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voted “no.” Other closely watched senators who voted “yes” to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination, such as Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., have yet to publicly declare how they will vote in the final round. Collins said ahead of the procedural vote that she would announce her decision Friday afternoon.
