Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh seems on track for confirmation, as moderate Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) have not signaled plans to oppose his confirmation despite strong lobbying over their votes.

Neither moderates voiced any misgivings at a meeting of the entire GOP conference Wednesday that was devoted to discussing Kavanaugh’s nomination, according to lawmakers in the room.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, predicted that Collins and Murkowski will support Kavanaugh.

“I can’t speak for them, but I’m just pretty sure they’ll be there,” he said. “He’s a good guy. There’s nothing controversial about him other than he’s a Republican and a conservative.”

Kavanaugh has already met with a handful of Republican senators and received strong reviews.

Republicans effectively control a 50-49 seat majority because Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is away from Washington indefinitely while undergoing treatment for brain cancer.

If Democrats hold their ranks opposing him, a single Republican defection would be enough to sink Kavanaugh.
