Maybe a Delay

I’ve been putting off posting until there was news that the Kavanaugh nomination had been approved by the Judiciary Committee. And the Judiciary Committee vote kept getting delayed. Then the news was that the aptly named Jeff Flake voted yes but requested a one-week delay on the floor vote for investigation. Otherwise, he said, he might choose to vote against Kavanaugh in the end.

However, now we’re hearing that Lisa Murkowski and Joe Manchin also have come out for a one-week delay, which is getting a little more serious. Kavanaugh might need Murkowski’s and Manchin’s votes.

Stay tuned.
