Murkowski’s No Vote on Kavanaugh Shows High Pressure on Both Parties

Kavanaugh denies the allegation, which also prompted an investigation by the FBI limited in scope and time.

Kavanaugh's confirmation appeared to be a sure thing after Republican Sens. For Murkowski specifically, she voted "yes" on the motion to invoke cloture for Betsy DeVos' nomination for Education Secretary back in February 2017.

A final vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is expected on Saturday afternoon.

If Murkowski asked to be recorded the same way she voted Friday - a "no" - Republican senators would have to preside over the Senate to keep the chamber open late into Saturday night and potentially early Sunday to wait for Daines to fly from Montana to DC.

This march is part of a nationwide protest coming one day after Republican Susan Collins of ME and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced they would back the appeals court judge. Republican Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) voted not to send the nomination to the full Senate. Trump's first nominee, Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed to the Supreme Court past year after the Senate changed its rules so that a nominee could be confirmed to the high court with a simple majority. "What she did was to come forward and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and agree to cooperate with any investigation by the FBI and that's what she sought to do here", Katz said.

She did say that she found Ford's testimony "compelling", but that it wasn't enough to not vote for the judge.

A sharply partisan battle over Kavanaugh became an intense political drama when university professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were in high school in Maryland in 1982.

She accused May of failing to acknowledge the reality around her, saying: "It's the general election all over again". Mr Redwood said: "She has got to listen to it because this is the heart of the nation, the heart of the party".

Trump's remark about "paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs" is likely a reference to a conspiracy theory he touted on Friday, when he tweeted that the sexual assault victims that confronted Sen.

Based on the initial votes, Kavanaugh is expected to be confirmed for the lifetime appointment after final votes are cast on Saturday. Collins said Kavanaugh assured her during a private meeting that Roe v. Wade, the ruling that established abortion rights, is settled law.

- Protesters gathered in Atlanta to march against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Following Friday's vote, Mr Trump tweeted that he was "very proud".

In the procedural ballot, senators voted 51-49 to limit debate, defeating Democratic efforts to scuttle the nomination with endless delays.

On Friday, Collins announced on the Senate floor that she would vote to approve Kavanagh, questioned before a Senate panel about alleged sex abuse and alleged alcoholic blackouts.
