Senate Republicans have been told not to go anywhere this weekend because they need to vote on Kavanaugh ASAP, which means as early as next Tuesday:
THE HILL – Senate Republicans are eyeing a vote on the floor on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination next week.
Senators, while coming out of a closed-door caucus lunch, acknowledged the situation remains fluid, but said they expected to be in session through the weekend to run out the procedural clock, a move that would allow them to wrap up Kavanaugh’s nomination next week.
GOP Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the No. 2 GOP senator and member of leadership, told reporters that if Kavanaugh could get out of the Judiciary Committee on Friday they would be able to be done with the nomination “by the first part of next week.”
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) said he was planning to be around until Tuesday to finish Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“If you plan to do something before next Tuesday I wouldn’t plan on it,” Isakson said.
GOP Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) initially told reporters that a vote could happen on Tuesday. He later hedged after the lunch saying it depends on how much Democrats drag out the procedural clock.
Listening to Cavuto, he affirms that Tuesday is the expected day for a vote. Sen. Cornyn was just on his show and that’s what they are aiming for, to get this nomination vote done as quickly as possible.
But Cavuto suggests it might be a tough road to get there that quickly. I’m sure the Democrats will make this as hard as humanly possible. Who knows, they might even try and burn the Capitol building down to stop it! LOL!
