President Trump announced on Twitter that the vote will take place around 3 to 5 PM EDT today and that women who support Kavanaugh will be there to offer public support for the nominee.
Women for Kavanaugh, and many others who support this very good man, are gathering all over Capitol Hill in preparation for a 3-5 P.M. VOTE. It is a beautiful thing to see – and they are not paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs. Big day for America!
