Kavanaugh Passes Cloture Vote, 51-49; Manchin, Collins, Flake Vote Yes

This is just the vote to end debate.

And about those "undecided votes."

Susan Collins says her vote is only for cloture, not the nomination, and she will say more at 3 pm. Friday news dump folks.

Lisa Murkowski was a "no" on cloture and she's got cover to vote no due to Kavanaugh's stands on the rights of Native People. That's a local issue in Alaska.

Jeff Flake voted yes on cloture. No one pins any hopes on Jeff Flake.

And Manchin? COME ON, Joe.
