The Senate Judiciary Committee is planning to vote on Friday morning to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate floor. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) then plans a Saturday procedural vote to formally move to the nomination, with a potential confirmation vote as early as Tuesday.

Publicly, Republicans do not have the votes yet to confirm Kavanaugh, but GOP leaders seem confident they can push him through with brute force.

After the committee acts, McConnell is expected to move to a procedural vote on Saturday. If that's successful, another procedural vote would occur on Monday, and a final vote on Tuesday.

Kavanaugh needs at least 50 votes to be confirmed; Vice President Mike Pence would vote if the chamber is evenly split. If all Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, it would take two Republicans voting "no" to block his confirmation.

Things are heating up on the Senate Judiciary Committee and Brett Kavanaugh is right in the middle of it. Will this change the nomination or will he be allowed to be confirmed? Time will tell but, we sure hope its the first option rather then the second.

Lets Stand Up Against Questionable Immigration Practices this November

"Barletta may share extremist views with other fringe Pennsylvania Republicans, such as Rep. Scott Perry, but those views are far outside the mainstream of Pennsylvania voters. "About one - third of Pennsylvanian's approve while almost 60 percent disapprove of the Trump/Barletta immigration stances"" 

Lou Barletta is on the board of a hate group. Both Lou Barletta and Scott Perry champion horrifying xenophobia. We here at the DCDC refuse to allow proponents of monstrous acts like family seperation to hide themselves under the mantle of national security. We can keep our borders secure from those who seek to do harm without in turn doing harm to the overwhelming majority of asylum seekers and refugees seeking no more than a better life. And we can certainly protect our country without destroying our principles.

We'll be there this November to stop these hateful extremists in their tracks.
