A Powerful Confirming Speech From Republican Susan Collins on Friday

A Powerful Confirming Speech From Republican Susan Collins on Friday
No one knew whether Republican Senator Susan Collins would vote for Brett Kavanaugh to become the next Supreme Court Judge. But she carefully laid out what no Senator had done before her – the entire case for why she plans to vote for him. This is one of the finest speeches I have ever heard from any congressperson. She may look somewhat elderly, but her mind is wonderfully young. Do hear her.

The two women sitting behind Susan Collins during this speech are Republican Senators Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, who have both announced their support for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.  –Ray
