(CNSNews.com) - The U.S. Senate on Saturday afternoon voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court by a final vote of 50 to 48.

The official roll call vote, as posted on the Senate website, can be seen by clicking here.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R.-Alaska) initially voted against Kavanaugh, but at the end of the roll call withdrew that vote and voted "present" in order to compensate for the absence of Sen. Steve Daines (R.-Mont.), who had to attend his daughter's wedding today.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) was the only Democrat who voted for Kavanaugh. Sen. Murkowski was the only Republican who did not vote for him.
