Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has announced that she will vote “Yes” on confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
Murkowski explained she was still against taking this up before the election, but now that Barrett is up for vote, she is voting “yes” based on her qualifications.
“I will be a yes,” Murkowski announced Saturday on the floor “I have no doubt about her intellect. I have no doubt about Judge Barrett’s judicial temperament. I have no doubt about her capability to do the job — and to do it well.”
“I have concluded that she is the sort of person we want on the Supreme Court,” Murkowski added.
The Prediction Betting Market of PredictIt is now assigning very low probability of Barrett being blocked and the highest probability of Barrett being confirmed with 52 votes.
