Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) says he’s going to attend his daughter’s wedding back home in Montana on Saturday regardless of a possible weekend Senate vote on embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Daines told The Associated Press today that this weekend there’s going to be a new Supreme Court justice and that he is going to walk his daughter down the aisle.

Daines has backed Kavanaugh’s nomination throughout the confirmation process and is an anticipated “yes” vote.

That’s huge news because Republicans could potentially be in a bind to confirm Kavanaugh if Daines is a no-show.

With a 51-49 majority, the GOP can only afford to lose one vote, assuming all Democrats vote no.

Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote in the case of a tie.

Senate Republican leaders plan to hold a key procedural vote Friday morning, setting up a potential confirmation vote for Saturday afternoon.

It is unclear if Daines’ trip will impact the timing of the vote.
