Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin “Strongly” Signals A ‘Yes’ Vote On Kavanaugh


There are 51 GOP and 49 Democrats. If Flake holds and the pick-up Manchin, the other questions are Collins and Murkowski. But looking positive if they are able to hold.

Via Daily Wire:

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), another potential swing vote in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, strongly signaled a “Yes” vote on Wednesday when he announced his reviewing process.

According to Manchin, he will base his vote on Kavanaugh’s life from age 22-53, not his life in high school, which Democrats have increasingly scrutinized in the past weeks amid allegations from Christine Blasey Ford that the SCOTUS nominee sexually assaulted her at a pool party 36 years ago.

“I am looking at the gentleman as an adult from 22 to 53, thirty-one years of professional service,” Manchin told Al-Jazeera. “I am looking at him as a father. As a person in a community, how he interacts with his community. I am trying to put the human side to it.”

And more on Flake looking like a yes (if he doesn’t flake again).
