Elaina Plott, who writes for the Atlantic, is tweeting that she has been told by a source that Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) is leaning towards confirming Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
According to Plott, the source said “Manchin likes Kavanaugh and has always wanted to find a way to support him.”
Manchin is a red state Democrat. His vote, along with the votes of Flake, Collins, and Murkowski, previously seemed like it could go either way.
