During and after the cloture vote Friday morning to move forward with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, NBC’s Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell held out hope that unnamed Republican Senators could change their minds to oppose Kavanaugh and that, amidst the onslaught of pressure (read: verbal harassment from the left), voting against the Judge is thinking “beyond reelection.”

Referring to the four Senators whom observers were unsure of how they’d vote (Susan Collins, Jeff Flake, Joe Manchin, and Lisa Murkowski), Todd thought that “all these people will be yes today, but I think tomorrow — and, you know, don't discount there are some wobblier Republicans that haven't gotten a lot of attention.”
