The 4 Key Senators Democrats Are Asking Americans to Call to Encourage ‘No’ Vote for Kavanaugh

Susan Collins

UPDATE [10/5/18, 4:09 p.m. EST]:
Senators Flake, Manchin and Collins have said they will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. 

The fate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh depends on the votes of four senators. Three Republicans and one Democrat are considered “swing votes” in confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Democratic senators such as Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are asking Americans to call their senators before the Senate takes a final vote on Saturday.

Here are those four key senators:

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine)

Collins in a centrist Republican. She is pro-abortion rights, and many Democrats are arguing that Kavanaugh will be the vote that can overturn Roe v. Wade and challenge the legal standing of abortion.

Collins voted “yes” in the procedural vote to move forward Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday morning. She is expected to explain her final vote on the Senate floor at 3 p.m. Friday.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.)

Flake is conservative, but he’s an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he hesitated on voting to put the Kavanaugh nomination through to the Senate floor and asked for an FBI investigation.

Flake voted “yes” in Friday’s procedural vote. He told reporters Friday he will vote “yes” in the Senate’s final voter “unless something big changes.”

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.)

Manchin is a Democrat, but he represents a red state that heavily supported Trump in 2016. The West Virginia senator is up for re-election in November.

Manchin is the only Democrat that voted “yes” a in Friday’s procedural vote.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)

Chairman of the National Democratic Committee, Tom Perez, encouraged people to call Sen. Murkowski as well. However shortly after his tweet, Murkowski voted “no” on the procedural vote to move forward Kavanaugh’s nomination. She was the only Republican to do so.

According to The Hill, Murkowski told reporters Friday, “[I] took the very, very difficult vote that I did. I believe that Brett Kavanaugh is a good man. I believe he is a good man, it just may be that in my view he’s not the right man for the court at this time.”

Liberal activists are posting the numbers of the senators’ offices on social media and are asking people to take action.

For Kavanaugh to be confirmed, three of the listed four senators will need to vote “no” on the final vote on Kavanaugh expected to happen on Saturday.

  1. “Facts matter, fairness matters.” — Susan Collins on deciding to vote “yes” for Kavanaugh.

    Every time the Dims wail that Roe v. Wade will go away (so what if it does? abortion will still be legal on a state-level) it reminds me that we aren’t all dead, as they’ve predicted each time they are thwarted.

    Good. I will gloat over yet another of their defeats.

    1. thanks Screw for stating a FACT about Roe v Wade. Legalized abortion is NOT going away. It will be decided on a state level and we all know that abortion will ALWAYS be legal at least in one state, Californication.

      1. banstan, I’m pretty certain it will be ALL the Blue states, with most others allowing it in modified form. It won’t be like Morbo from Futurama crying “Doooom!”. That’s the Dim line. If they had ANY credibility I’d be amazed we aren’t all dead yet.

        Inspiring people with fear is not a good long-term solution, but the Dim’s haven’t figured that out yet. Don’t they remind you of the street-corner profits predicting the world will end, except it doesn’t? Maybe just THEIR world.

        “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.” Agent K, Men In Black and the current Dim philosophy.

  2. Listening to Collins grandstand today was agonizing. This entire process should have never happened. A man’s life and his family will never be the same. As for Ford…..2 front doors was a lie. It was about a rental. No one came forward to say they drove her home after her supposed attack. Save your pity,dimwits, for the women who really need it. This one is a fraud.

    1. Let her grandstand so long as she votes in favor of Kavanaugh.

  3. Dumbocrats don’t even deserve a key to the Executive Washroom.
