WASHINGTON (NBC News) — The full Senate on Friday advanced the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, 51-49, a critical step to open debate before a planned final vote this weekend.

As of Friday morning, four key senators still remained publicly undecided on whether to ultimately confirm the embattled nominee: Republican Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, along with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.

Murkowski voted against the Friday morning measure. It remained possible that some of the undecided senators who voted to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday might not ultimately vote to confirm him.
