By Thom Craver CBS/AP October 5, 2018, 2:33 PM Senator Susan Collins announces Kavanaugh vote – live stream
Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) is one of the few remaining undecided votes on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Today at 3 p.m. – in a speech on the Senate floor – she will announce how she will vote.
Earlier Friday, Collins voted "yes" on advancing Kavanaugh to a final vote. But that vote was only to advance to a final vote and is not a definite indicator of which way the she will go in the final vote. The Maine Republican is a key vote for confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Earlier this week, Senator Collins was escorted out of a hearing by three police officers. She ignored questions from reporters. Police later threatened to clear a public hallway outside her office in the Dirksen Senate Office Building and physically blocked reporters from approaching Collins as she left the office to return to the Capitol for a vote.
