More on Murkowski, per The Hill:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Friday evening that she opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, becoming the only Republican senator to come out against President Trump‘s nominee.

“I will be a no tomorrow,” Murkowski said in a speech on the Senate floor after describing how she had come to lean against voting to confirm Trump’s second nominee to the high court in a final vote on Saturday.

But Murkowski said that in the final tally she would ask that her vote be recorded as “present,” saying she was doing it as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who is slated to attend his daughter’s wedding back home on Saturday.

Continued:

“I do this because a friend, a colleague of ours is in Montana this evening and … he’s going to be walking his daughter down the aisle and he won’t be present to vote,” Murkowski said. “I have extended this as a courtesy to my friend. It will not change the outcome of the vote.”

The move described by Murkowski is known as “pairing” a vote, which will allow her to initially vote “no” on Saturday but then withdraw her vote and change it to “present.”

Murkowski announced her decision hours after it became clear that Kavanaugh had enough votes to be confirmed.
