Sen. Susan Collins: “I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh”

Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) is voting yes on confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. On Friday, she gave a long announcement on the Senate floor to declare her vote and explain her rationale.

Earlier Friday, Collins voted “yes” on advancing Kavanaugh to a final vote. But that vote was only to advance to a final vote and was not a definite indicator of which way she would go in the final vote. The Maine Republican is a key vote for confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
