WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS NEWS) – Judge Brett Kavanaugh will get a final floor vote, after enough senators voted 51-49 to advance his nomination Friday.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, one of four undecided key senators, voted against advancing Kavanaugh in a procedural vote, while Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, voted to advance his nomination.
That does not necessarily mean those senators will vote the same way in a final vote, the timing of which has yet to be announced.
The vote comes amid allegations of sexual misconduct and intense protests that have divided the nation.
