Grassley: Kavanaugh vote in Judiciary Committee to be ‘very narrow’

(KTIV) – Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is on the agenda of the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow.

But Committee Chairman Senator Charles Grassley, of Iowa, doesn’t expect a committee vote until the next meeting on September 20.

Grassley says that vote will be “very narrow,” but he expects Kavanaugh’s nomination to advance to the full Senate.

“I think the hearing, last week, showed the absolute competence of Judge Kavanaugh,” said Sen. Charles Grassley, (R) Iowa. “Considering his 12 years on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, more importantly how he handled himself under some very tough questioning from people who are going to vote against him, he showed that he’s a ‘judge’s judge’.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hopes to get the Kavanaugh vote through the full Senate by October 1st.
