Members of the Senate gathered Saturday to provide their final vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh following weeks of turmoil over sexual misconduct allegations against the federal appeals judge.

Following an FBI investigation into the accusations, particularly those made by Christine Blasey Ford — who claimed Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the early 1980s, Senators voted Friday to advance the nomination.

The vote to invoke cloture was 51-49, putting Kavanaugh closer to becoming the next Supreme Court Justice.

The final confirmation vote is now expected to begin around 3:50 p.m. ET. Follow’s live blog below. Mobile users click here.
