Rand Paul Announces Support For Kavanaugh
Article from the Louisville Courier-Journal by Darcy Costello.
Sen. Rand Paul on Friday announced he would support Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court after weeks of being relatively silent about sexual misconduct allegations facing the nominee.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has emphatically backed Kavanaugh, pushing the nominee ahead over protests and contentious hearings.
A vote Friday morning narrowly advanced Kavanaugh’s nomination to a final vote that’s expected Saturday afternoon. Senators voted 51 to 49 to move ahead, with two lawmakers crossing party lines.
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the only Republican to vote against Kavanaugh, called it one of the most difficult decisions of her career.

“Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the only Republican to vote against Kavanaugh, called it one of the most difficult decisions of her career.”
You bet it was, as there is no longer a “career”.
This has made her famous, in a horrible way.
She’ll regret it, I guarantee ot.
She isn’t due for reelection until 2022. She is gambling that the voters will forget about it by then. I still wonder what the conversation was about when Senator Frankenstein had her cornered in the hall the other day. I doubt they were talking about family or grandchildren.
I have pushed for her removal since daddy gave her the job & I am the furthest thing from a dem you will find. 30 yr Alaskan
I don’t know if Murkowski is up for re-election or not but if she is then this is going to be the major reason she’s doesn’t get reelected.
If I were an Alaskan I think I would try to get her recalled, the way we fire them when they don’t do the people’s wishes.
