In a strict party-line vote this afternoon, the Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocked on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). The 11-11 tally is expected to result in Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) calling for a floor vote later today to "discharge" Joe Biden's pick from the Judiciary Committee. FOX News reports:
This means the chamber would be able to advance through the cloture process throughout the week, setting up a likely Thursday or Friday final confirmation vote barring anything unforeseen.
It also means Sens. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who haven't yet announced whether they will vote for Jackson, will be forced on the record in short order. Their support would be a major win for the White House, which is seeking bipartisan backing for Jackson.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is the only Republican to announce she will vote for Jackson so far.
Democrats need only a simple majority to "discharge" Jackson's nomination to the full Senate. With Collins' support or a tie-breaking vote from Kamala Harris as "President of the Senate," a final confirmation vote could be less than 72 hours away!
Jackson has come under fire for her weak sentencing of child predators, her inability (or unwillingness) to define what a "woman" is, her refusal to condemn Democrat efforts to "pack" the High Court, and her apparent support for divisive Critical Race Theory.
