Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will vote in favor of Elena Kagan’s
confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Graham announced his intention to vote for Kagan’s appointment to the bench before the final Judiciary Committee vote Tuesday.
Graham is the only Republican of the seven on the Judiciary Committee expected to join all 12 Democrats to vote for Kagan. A final panel vote is expected about noon after every senator on the committee finishes making their statements explaining their vote.
The full Senate is expected to approve her nomination with just a handful of centrist GOP votes most likely later this month.
