19. Murkowski effectively voted against confirming kavanaugh

By voting present for the final vote. She also voted against advancing kavanaugh to the senate floor for confirmation. It was the best decision for her stateís interest as Alaska has unique challenges, and should be commended for her independence in thought and principles from her party whipped into line with the tRump cult.

I donít see much benefit in flattening her record on this, as yet again, voting for whatís best for her state that is geographically close to Russia is a set of decisions unlike that of her, um, southern colleagues. She doesnít have the luxury of the political insurance that comes from a sweetheart deal for a russian aluminum plant or cushy federal construction contracts like Moscow Mitch ensconced within the boundaries of the lower 48, etc.

I say her party should think pretty hard about her arguments and position, and I hope others follow her lead for doing whatís best for their constituents and the entire Country.
