The Loneliness of Tim Scott or how nearly the entire Republican mainstream, including its intellectual class, has either embraced voter suppression or turned a blind eye to it. https://t.co/8O19BudVN2

CNN: GOP Senator Tim Scott has decided to oppose the nomination of federal judge Thomas Farr, effectively ending his chance of being confirmed.

The vote on Farr will be soon. He would be a terrible pick for a judge. Gutless Republicans will probably approve him.
Two highly-qualified women of color had their nominations blocked by the GOP to serve on the Eastern District Court in North Carolina. And now the GOP want to fill this vacancy with Thomas Farr, whose nomination represents a historic injustice to the people of NC. I will vote no. pic.twitter.com/fYHbvpSKZD

WOW, under immense pressure, SC Sen. Tim Scott votes yes to move forward on judicial nominee, supporting the president and not civil rights groups who say the nominee has a history of supporting voter suppression, including with minorities.
Unclear if he is a yes on final

I've worked on judicial nominations in DC for 30+ years, and I've never seen a worst nominee than Thomas Farr.

Sen. Scott on Farr nomination: “I don’t really have a good answer for you. I have no answer, actually”

A vote for Thomas Farr this week is a vote in support of voter suppression. His confirmation for a life-long judgeship would be a travesty for American democracy. That is not an exaggeration. https://t.co/SvUb4I4WYU

Today, the Senate will vote on whether to advance one of Trump's most controversial court picks, Thomas Farr.
Farr helped draft NC's voter suppression law, defended racist gerrymandering + may have lied to senators about aiding Jesse Helms in disenfranchising black voters. https://t.co/5DBhsLwJ2f

Thomas Farr’s record of hostility to voting rights & civil rights disqualifies him for a lifetime appointment as a judge. That’s why @staceyabrams and I are calling on every Senator who reveres our democracy to reject his nomination. https://t.co/3pAymqoCki

Sen. Susan Collins told me she would support the district court nomination of Thomas Farr, saying she met with him and he alleviated her concerns, while also noting the American Bar Association’s position on him — a big boost for GOP with his nomination hanging by a thread
