Ten Republican senators are still undecided on how they will vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
According to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, 41 Republican Senators have committed to a “Yea” vote in favor of Kavanaugh. Because the GOP holds a razor-thin majority in the Senate, every vote counts.
Judge Kavanaugh needs a minimum of 50 senators to vote for his confirmation, and a yes vote from Vice President Mike Pence would take him over the finish line, for a final tally of 51-49.
Kavanaugh requires 51 yeas for confirmation. Senate divided 51 GOPers to 49 Sens who caucus with Dems. 41 GOPers are yeas. 10 GOPers have not pledged their votes yet: Cassidy, Collins, Corker, Enzi, Flake, Kennedy, Lankford, Moran, Murkowski & Sasse.

So far, the only Republican Senator who has consistently shown any backbone is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who delivered an impassioned speech on the Senate floor on September 24.
“I’m going to fight this nomination with everything I’ve got,” McConnell vowed. “Democrats have signaled for months that they’d put on whatever performance the Far-Left special interests demanded and throw all the mud they could manufacture. Even by the Far Left’s standards, this shameful smear campaign has hit a new low.”
McConnell continued: “Senate Democrats and their allies are trying to destroy a man’s personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated.This is what the so-called ‘Resistance’ has become: A smear campaign, pure and simple. Aided and abetted by members of the United States Senate.”
McConnell slammed obstructionist Democrats for sitting on Christine Blasey Ford’s 36-year-old claims, and then opportunistically leaking them to the liberal media in order to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“Eight weeks ago, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee received a letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford with an uncorroborated allegation of misconduct,” he said. “They sat on Dr. Ford’s letter for seven weeks. They kept it secret. They did nothing. They bid their time. And then they threw Professor Ford’s wishes overboard and leaked it to the press.”
“This is an allegation of misconduct which all four supposed witnesses either flatly contradict or are unable to back up. In addition to Judge Kavanaugh, the other three supposed witnesses have said they have ‘no knowledge,’ ‘no recollection,’ and ‘no memory’ of the alleged incident.
It’s not just one alleged witness disagreeing with the allegations — it’s literally every person who was supposedly there. One of these supposed witnesses said she does not even know Judge Kavanaugh.
But Democrats wouldn’t let a few inconvenient things — like a complete lack of evidence, or an accuser’s request for confidentiality — get between them and a good smear. It’s despicable.
Here are the facts we do have: Hundreds of men and women who have known Brett Kavanaugh across his life have written or spoken out that he is a man of strong character and tremendous integrity.
More than 75 women gathered last week to share their decades-long knowledge of Judge Kavanaugh as a ‘responsible guy who treats us with kindness and respect,’ and a ‘true gentleman in all aspects of his life.’
And separately, of course, it remains beyond reasonable dispute that Judge Kavanaugh’s legal brilliance and excellence on the bench make him one of the very most qualified Supreme Court nominees in the history of our country.
Maybe that’s why the Democrats are so panicked. Maybe that’s why they are so willing to try to bring down this nominee.”
