The dramatic and nasty confirmation fight over as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is nearing a conclusion, as the Senate is in the final hours of debate Saturday, prior to their final vote.

After assurances from key holdout senators Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), it is expected that Kavanaugh will be confirmed in a 50-48 vote.

According to a tweet from Washington Examiner correspondent Byron York, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office has provided an update on when the vote is set to take place:

UPDATE: The Senate will proceed to a roll call vote on confirmation between 3:30pm and 3:45pm today. Many thanks to the unrelenting, unwavering hard work of Chairman Grassley and the Senate Judiciary Committee staff, and so many others.
