Sen. Steve Daines won’t be in town if the Senate votes this weekend on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, which could leave Republicans in a bind.

The Montana Republican told AP that he will attend his daughter’s wedding back home on Saturday regardless of a possible weekend vote on the embattled Supreme Court nominee.

Daines told The Associated Press Thursday 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.
