VoiceWith the vote to confirm Kavanaugh looking so close, one senator’s daughter’s wedding has gained unusual prominence.
Senator Steve Daines, a Republican from Montana, plans to attend his daughter’s wedding in his home state on Saturday – the expected voting day.

The Senate is divided 51-49 Republican to Democrat. If all Democrats vote no (not a certainty) and one Republican defects, there will be a tie decided by vice-president Mike Pence.
That slim margin also means there is not room for a Republican senator not to show up – even if it’s his daughter’s wedding.
Another complicating factor? There’s no direct commercial flights out of Montana to DC on Saturday, and with layovers the journey could take more than seven hours – not an ideal travel time for someone looking to attend a wedding and a historic Senate vote.
Daines, however, said Friday afternoon he’d sorted it out.
Collins poised to announce
Hello, we’re back. Protests are raging across Washington DC as activists try to push swing senators their way.
Everyone is watching for Susan Collins, the Maine Republican who has promised a speech at 3pm announcing whether or not she will be backing Kavanaugh.
In response to Donald Trump’s tweet alleging anti-Kavanaugh protestors were “paid professionals,” the Daily Beast’s Sam Stein has this observation from the halls of Congress.
