On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced on Twitter that he will support President Trump’s nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh for confirmation to the Supreme Court.

With Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., absent due to his health, Republicans need every member of the slim 51-49 majority to confirm Kavanaugh.

There was some concern that Paul would oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination after he raised concerns over the judge’s record on privacy rights. Now that it’s clear Paul will support the judge, Republicans should have enough votes to confirm Kavanaugh without Democrat support, provided Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine or Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, don’t pull a surprise 180 and turn on Trump’s nominee.
