Will GOP hold up Kagan vote?


The Senate Judiciary Committee is schedule to vote on the nomination of Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court on Tuesday morning. HOWEVER, the committee rules allow any member to request the vote be held over for one week. Over the years, this has become a common practice for minority party.

At this point, it is unclear if Republicans will exercise their right to "hold over" the vote which would then happen the following week on July 20th. Stay tuned.

(Again, the COMMITTEE vote is scheduled for the 13th, but there's a good chance it won't happen until the 20th. And it's up to Majority Leader Reid as to when her confirmation comes before the full Senate.)

Today the chttp://judiciary.senate.gov/nominations/SupremeCourt/KaganIndex.cfm">ommittee released Kagan's written responses to questions asked of her during her confirmation hearings.
