Reuters: Panel sends Alito nomination to full Senate

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines on Tuesday to approve President George W. Bush’s nomination of
Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, moving the 55-year-old conservative a step closer toward confirmation by the full Republican-led Senate.

With 10 Republicans voting yes and eight Democrats voting no, the committee sent the nomination to the 100-member Senate. The full chamber is to begin debate on Wednesday, with a confirmation vote as early as the end of this week.

Pretty much as Flap handicapped.

Now will come the filibuster.

Stay tuned.

One thought on “Samuel Alito Watch: Senate Judiciary Committee Sends Nomination to Full Senate

  1. Now that Judge Alito is heading for confirmation to the Supreme Court, the American people can breath a sigh of relief. He has an outstanding record and the highest record of the American Bar Association. Even more, colleagues of Judge Alito from both sides of the party lines have spoken out in his support. Just last night Ed Rendell, the former DNC Chair and Governor of Pennsylvania expressed his support.
