Republican Sen. Susan Collins is scheduled to announce her final decision on Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh at 3 p.m. eastern today.
She says she will vote “yes” on cloture at the 10:30 a.m. ET vote, first.
"I will be voting yes on proceeding to the final confirmation vote and I will announce my intentions on how to vote later today," she told reporters just now.
Note: We expected the earlier vote would be the key one to watch, as we assumed senators would be unlikely to vote one way today and then another way tomorrow. We'll have to wait for Collins' 3 p.m. announcement to find out if that's still true.
