Ain’t it grand having a Republican majority in the Senate? Here is a list of the spineless 10. For the record, Cruz didn’t bother to show up to vote no, and Rand Paul backed Mitch McConnell voted yes. What great choices we have.
In an unexpected turn, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) voted with all Democrats to confirm Lynch after slow-walking her nomination.
The other Republicans who voted for Lynch were Sens. Orrin Hatch (UT), Lindsey Graham (SC), Jeff Flake (AZ), Thad Cochran (MS), Susan Collins (ME), Mark Kirk (IL), Kelly Ayotte (NH), Ron Johnson (WI) and Rob Portman (OH).
