White House officials hope the Senate votes on Saturday to confirm Kavanaugh, Sarah Sanders said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders conducted a brief gaggle outside the West Wing following a television hit. Below are some highlights. Your pooler’s audio recording is not stellar, but the networks were rolling.

 

Asked if the White House and Senate GOP leaders have the votes to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she said: “I sure hope so.”

 

“I think that we should,” she added.

 

“He’s done more than any nominee in history in terms of amount of documents he’s turned over, hours of testimony, interviews.” 

 

“Look, the president supports his nominee and wants to see him get confirmed.”

 

She has not talked to the president about Kavanaugh’s WSJ op-ed.

 

“Honestly, I think a lot of Democrats should change their mind and do the right thing and [confirm] Judge Kavanaugh,” Sanders said in response to a question about any White House worries that currently pro-Kavanaugh senators might change their minds before Saturday’s vote.

 

White House officials hope the Senate votes on Saturday, Sanders said.
