The Senate is expected to take a procedural vote Friday morning at 10:30am ET to limit debate on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, which if successful would set up a confirmation vote in the afternoon or evening on Saturday.
Friday’s vote is on a “cloture motion”, which if agreed to (or “invoked”) limits further debate on the underlying bill or nomination to 30 hours.
The motion only needs a simple majority to succeed, as is the case with a possible confirmation vote, and a tie can be broken by Vice President Mike Pence.
