The news that Arizona governor Doug Ducey has appointed former Senator John Kyl the serve out the remainder of Sen. John McCain’s term is encouraging for Republicans. But:
Kyl, who left the Senate in 2013, said he will serve at least until the end of this Congress in January, but has not committed to serving in 2019 and 2020.
Kyl is a smart pick, and not a squish on policy like McCain.
Kyle is well liked by Republicans and conservatives in Arizona and will be one more vote for Kavanaugh, meaning Dems would need to turn two Republicans against him to defeat the nomination. I don’t see Senators Collins and Murkowski flipping, unless something disastrous takes place during the hearings, which I don’t see happening.
