Montana Senator Steve Daines to Cast Kavanaugh Vote Despite Scheduling Conflict — His Daughter's Wedding
Daines, a Republican, said he will fly back from the ceremony in Montana in time for Saturday’s vote.
As Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation moves to a final vote, Montana Sen. Steve Daines has revealed a scheduling conflict: his daughter's wedding.
Annie Daines is set to marry Brad Moss in Montana Saturday, the same day of the final Kavanaugh vote currently slated for about 5 p.m. Saturday in Washington D.C.
Daines, a Republican who supports Kavanaugh's confirmation, told CNN he'll leave Montana in time to cast his vote for the judge.
“I'd come back after the wedding," he told CNN. “It will probably be early morning. We're taking it a day at a time to see what happens."
Daines told CNN that GOP leaders may force a delay in the vote until he returns from Montana.
It is still unclear whether Daines will be allowed to vote if he can't be in Washington.
Daines told CNN GOP leaders "have literally not said how they will manage" his absence for the vote.
"I was very emotional last Thursday, more so than I have ever been,” he wrote. “I might have been too emotional at times. I know that my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said."
