The Senate just voted to end debate on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, moving the chamber to a final vote Saturday evening amid a rancorous fight over decades-old sexual assault allegations against him.

The vote to invoke cloture was 51-49. While the vote was not necessarily indicative of the final confirmation vote, it moved him one step closer to sitting on the highest court in the land and three out of four key undecided senators voted “yes” to advance the nomination.

Chad Pergram of Fox News reported about Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski’s “no” vote.

Rush Limbaugh’s right-hand-man, Bo Snerdly weighed in on Republican Senator Murkowski’s “no” vote on Kavanaugh, suggesting that Murkowski needs to have a STRONG challenger in the next primary, reminding voters  that she’s a weak candidate, who was actually “taken out in a primary but came back to win in the general”.

Popular conservative Candace Owens admonished Senator Murkowski, telling her that she “affirmed the stereotype of weak, emotional women.

The math for Republicans became somewhat trickier late Thursday when Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont.  said he would be attending his daughter’s wedding in Montana on Saturday, He said he would return to cast the decisive vote if needed.

Donald Trump Jr., who calls Senator Daines a “good friend” tweeted last night that Daines would make himself available to vote to confirm Kavanaugh if necessary:

Senator Collins (ME) who voted “yes” to advance the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh is not likely to change her vote, but rest assured, the Left will be putting an enormous amount of pressure on her and on her office to change her mind on Kavanaugh. PLEASE call to thank her for her vote today, and ask her to vote “yes” on his confirmation tomorrow. Here is her Washington DC number: (202) 224-2523
