Cornyn: I’m Optimistic Kavanaugh Will Be Confirmed...in Bipartisan Fashion

After hours of testimony from Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill Thursday, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) said Friday morning he believes the Supreme Court nominee will be voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ultimately confirmed in bipartisan fashion.

"I'm optimistic. We've been in constant communication with all of my colleagues...I'm optimistic we'll confirm the judge," Cornyn said during an interview with Fox and Friends. "I'm hopeful that Senator Donnelly, Senator Manchin, Senator Heitkamp, all of whom voted for Neil Gorsuch, will see their way to vote for this nominee. I'm optimistic we'll have a bipartisan vote."

As Matt reported last night, Kavanaugh is likely to be confirmed not only by swing vote Republicans, but a number of Democrats as well.

With the Senate Judiciary Committee holding a vote at 9:30 A.M. tomorrow, a Senate insider has told Townhall that Kavanaugh has the votes to make it out of committee and the votes to be confirmed on the floor for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Sens. Flake (R-AZ), Collins (R-ME), Murkowski (R-AK), and Manchin (D-WV) are expected to vote in favor of Kavanaugh. All the Republicans are voting yes. Also, in the rumor mill, several Democrats may break ranks and back Kavanaugh. That’s the ball game, folks.

As noted, the Committee will vote at 9:30 am ET. Republican Senators Flake, Murkowski and Collins have not publicly indicated if they are onboard.
