Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has changed her mind. After initially saying she didn’t think Barrett should be confirmed before the election, giving hope to Democrats that there might be a GOP insurgency to prevent confirmation, Murkowski on Saturday said “I will be a yes.”
“I believe that the only way to put us back on the path of appropriate consideration of judicial nominees is to evaluate Judge Barrett as we would want to be judged: on the merits of her qualifications,” said Murkowski.
“We do that when that final question comes before us. And when it does, I will be a yes.”
This is the right call, and a devastating blow for the Democrats. That tiny, thin little hope they had essentially dies here. No blocking. No stopping.
Barrett will be confirmed. THIS WEEK.
God Bless America.
