The Senate has voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as the next Supreme Court Justice.
The final vote was 50 to 48.
President Trump tweeted his congratulations to Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh is expected to be sworn in later today.
I applaud and congratulate the U.S. Senate for confirming our GREAT NOMINEE, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, to the United States Supreme Court. Later today, I will sign his Commission of Appointment, and he will be officially sworn in. Very exciting!
