The Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocked on a vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on Monday.
The vote, which came out to 11-11 along party lines, means the full Senate will soon vote on Jackson’s nomination without an official recommendation by the committee.
The Senate is currently evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats 50-50 with Kamala Harris as the tiebreaker.
