Brett Kavanaugh confirmation: where every senator stands on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee

Far before the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, most senators had already hinted which way they would vote.

Most Republicans senators quickly lined up behind Kavanaugh, who would surely swing the Court’s ideology to the right. They either endorsed him outright or heaped praise on Trump’s nominee, while noting that they take their judicial confirmation responsibility seriously.

Since the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, which he denies, no Republican senator has publicly said they would oppose his confirmation.

And now it appears every GOP senator, other than moderates Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME), have signaled that they will vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
