Democratic McCaskill will vote against Kavanaugh…
It appears that Republican Senator’s Collins, Murkowski and Flake seem to be looking for a way to cast their lot with their fellow Republicans….
Grassley has offered to send people anywhere to question Christine Blasey Ford…
He will try to move to have a vote in his Judiciary Committee on Monday…
Meanwhile it’s reported that Kavanaugh is doing Senate question rehearsal session none stop….
“If Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski don’t publicly oppose Kavanaugh, their legacy will be putting someone into the Supreme Court as the deciding vote who is hostile to women on all levels,” said Stephanie Taylor, PCCC co-founder.
Republican leadership is keeping a close eye on how potential swing votes within their caucus are reacting to their strategy for handling Ford’s accusation.
Grassley told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that no Republican senator has privately told them they will oppose Kavanaugh. But opposition from any combination of the three swing votes could pose a threat, and potentially sink, Kavanaugh’s nomination.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) said they are working with Collins, Murkowski and Flake to make sure the three senators believe they are treating Ford fairly.
“We’re working with them and others to try to make sure that they agree that the process and the opportunity we’re giving to Dr. Ford is fair,” he said, adding that leadership is “listening to their concerns [and] trying to accommodate.”..
