Senate Roll Call No. 223
115th Congress, 2nd Session

Confirmed: 50-48 (see complete tally)
On October 6, 2018, the U.S. Senate confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to be an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, by a vote of 50 to 48.  National Right to Life supported confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh.  Voting in support of confirmation were 49 Republican senators and one Democrat.  All 48 votes against confirmation were cast by members of the Senate Democratic caucus.  One Republican senator, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, expressed opposition to confirmation, but she withdrew her vote and voted "present" as a courtesy to Senator Steve Daines (R-Mt.), who supported confirmation but was absent for his daughter's wedding (such a balancing arrangement is known as a "live pair," and it did not affect the outcome of the vote).  October 6, 2018, Senate roll call no. 223.
