With a bipartisan vote, the Senate pushes Jackson’s nomination out of committee.

The Senate voted on Monday to move Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination to the floor for a final vote, clearing a procedural obstacle after the Judiciary Committee failed to advance her candidacy earlier in the day.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination was forced out of the Judiciary Committee by a vote of 53-47, putting the liberal judge on pace for ultimate confirmation by the end of the week.

Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, Utah’s Mitt Romney, and Maine’s Susan Collins sided with Democrats. When it comes time to vote on final confirmation, all three so-called “Republicans” will back Jackson.

“I will support Judge Jackson’s historic nomination to be an Associate Justice on the United States Supreme Court after many in-depth talks with her and careful consideration of her record and recent hearings,” Murkowski said in a statement.

Their statements came only hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee, as expected, deadlocked 11-11 on whether to move Jackson’s nomination to the full Senate on Monday.
