Kavanaugh was confirmed on a 50-48 vote with pro-abortion Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski voting present and pro-life Montana Senator Steve Daines, who supported Kavanaugh, absent due to his daughter’s wedding. All other Republicans voted for Kavanaugh along with West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and all other Democrats voted against his nomination.
Kavanaugh secured enough votes yesterday when Senators Susan Collins and Joe Manchin agreed to support him despite misleading accusations made by pro-abortion Demcorats and abortion activists agaisnt him.
“I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh,” she said at the end of a long speech blasting the character assassination campaign against Kavanaugh.
She said the contentious Kavanaugh confirmation hearings meant that the Senate had reached “rock bottom.”
