Republicans control the Senate by a meager 51-49 margin, and announcements of support Friday from Republicans Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME, along with Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, locked in the needed votes.

The US Senate has voted to confirm President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, after weeks of rancorous debate.

The 50-48 senate vote marked the end of a bitter, high-profile battle between Democrats and Republicans.

Democrats, if they choose to embrace the term "Kavanaughed", will agree that it means wanting to win - and they will point the finger straight at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Kavanaugh has denied all claims made against him. Corey Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of MA and Feinstein.

Democrats spent hours on the Senate floor ahead of the vote speaking out against Kavanaugh.

"I've known Brett Kavanaugh for 18 years, professionally and personally".

Trump responded: "Well, there were a lot of things happening that weren't correct, they weren't true and there were a lot of things that were left unsaid". "We must always remember that it is when passions are most inflamed that fairness is most in jeopardy".

By evening, a Capitol Police official had begun moving through the crowd to address them in small groups. There, 150 protesters were arrested and charged with "crowding, obstructing, or incommoding", according to a statement from the U.S. Capitol Police.

But Collins, a moderate, pro-choice lawmaker from ME, said Kavanaugh was entitled to the "presumption of innocence" as the allegations against him lacked corroborating evidence.

Support from Collins and Manchin would give Kavanaugh at least 51 votes.

"My heart goes out to anyone who has experienced any type of sexual assault in their life".

Sanders congratulated Bezos in a statement Tuesday for "doing exactly the right thing" and urged other companies to do the same. In August, Sanders blasted Amazon, saying its workers were forced to rely on government programs for subsistence.

"The President nominated a jurist who has been described by legal peers of all political stripes as a superstar", McConnell said, later adding that "Judge Brett Kavanaugh is among the very best our nation has to offer". People shouted "shame, shame" as Manchin spoke to reporters about his decision.

Republicans control the Senate by a meagre 51-49 margin.

Three female GOP senators - Jodi Ernst of Iowa, West Virginia's Shelley Moore Capito and Cindy Hyde-Smith of MS, sat directly behind Collins as she spoke. Kavanaugh is replacing Kennedy on the bench and once served as his law clerk. A few Democrats sat stone-faced nearby.

But two senators did step out of the party box. He hailed Maine Senator Susan Collins (Cecily Strong), who voted for Kavanaugh and said "it's important to believe women until it's time to stop, but also, I'm a guy's gal, I can party with the big dogs and we are going to have fun tonight".

"In my conscience. I could not conclude that he is the right person for the court at this time", the senator said. "And that is hard". Lisa Murkowski fail to vote "yea" on the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. One Republican, Steve Daines of Montana, did not vote because he was not present for family reasons.

Zovko says she believes the anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators have "good intentions". Vice President Mike Pence presided over the roll call, his potential tie-breaking vote unnecessary.

Trump watched the confirmation vote on a large-screen television tuned to Fox News in a wood-paneled cabin on the plane. But Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY forecast gains for his party instead.

But the report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation was met with mixed response, with survivors and Democrats saying it was "insufficient", but Mr Trump and Republicans calling it "thorough" and "professional".

"I am not a pro-plaintiff or pro-defendant judge", he said, in a highly unusual plea to defend his impartiality.

The path to Kavanaugh's confirmation cleared on Friday when two wavering Republicans, Susan Collins of ME and Jeff Flake of Arizona, said they would vote for Kavanaugh after concluding that Ford's allegations, voiced by her in an emotional hearing last week, could not be corroborated.

Meanwhile, Republicans raged against the other women's accusations. As a replacement for Anthony Kennedy, a frequent swing vote on cases dealing with LGBTQ rights, abortion, and affirmative action, Kavanaugh could cause the court to lean more conservative on these issues.
