Senate Set To Confirm Kagan

The Senate was on pace today to confirm Solicitor General Elena Kagan, handing the White House a win on a Supreme Court nomination that never generated much controversy. Senate Majority Leader Reid said the vote will be at 3:30 p.m. At least five Republicans announced plans to vote for her confirmation, while Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., was poised to deny Kagan unanimous Democratic support with a "no" vote. Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., who had been considered a possible "yes" vote, said today he would oppose Kagan's confirmation. Kagan will replace retired Justice John Paul Stevens.
