Breaking: GOP Senator Steve Daines Will Not Be Available for Saturday Vote on Judge Kavanaugh!
On Wednesday night Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) filed cloture to end debate on the Kavanaugh nomination. This set up a vote on Judge Kavanaugh set for Saturday.
Three Republican senators are still waffling on their vote for the distinguished judge. This is despite the FBI finding NO EVIDENCE to support the accusations of assault from 36 years ago.
Senator Steve Daines will not be at the Saturday vote — he will be at his daughter’s wedding.
Roll Call reported:
Sen. Steve Daines won’t be in town if the Senate votes this weekend on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, which could leave Republicans in a bind.
The Montana Republican told AP that he will attend his daughter’s wedding back home on Saturday regardless of a possible weekend vote on the embattled Supreme Court nominee.
Daines told The Associated Press Thursday that this weekend there’s going to be a new Supreme Court justice and that he is going to walk his daughter down the aisle.
