For her nomination to get out of the Senate Judiciary Committee one, just one, of these Republicans has to vote for her.

Senate Judiciary Committee rules state that one member of the minority party has to vote for the nominee. It does not matter if every DemoRat member votes for her it would take one of the guys below to also vote for her.

Jeff Sessions
Ranking Member
R-Alabama

Orrin G. Hatch
R-Utah

Charles E. Grassley
R-Iowa

Jon Kyl
R-Arizona

Lindsey Graham
R-South Carolina

John Cornyn
R-Texas

Tom Coburn
R-Oklahoma

He may or may not have been voted “most likely to succeed” by his high school class, but on this list, I think Lindsey Graham could be voted “most likely to cave”, but others will jealously want the title too: Cornyn, Hatch, etc. Maybe even Kyl is trying to attract Hispanic votes in AZ.

Orrin Hatch is probably going to be a problem, and quite possibly John Cornyn. Cornyn has become a big disappointment. He used to be quite conservative, but not any more.

If/When the nomination gets to the floor of the Senate, what are the chances of it being voted down there? Does it take a simple majority?

Hatch and Graham are the problem. Either one votes yes, its history.

This should be easy enough to hold up. Kyl MIGHT be a problem, but I doubt it.
