It looks like Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has enough support from the senate to be confirmed to the bench.
This was long expected. Most Republicans senators quickly lined up behind Kavanaugh, who would surely swing the Court’s ideology to the right. They either endorsed him outright or heaped praise on Trump’s nominee, while noting that they take their judicial confirmation responsibility seriously.
Sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh and the subsequent hearing threw some uncertainty into whether he had enough support from the senate. But now it looks like Kavanaugh has the support of every Republican except for Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) plus Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), which gives him 51 votes.
