15 votes in favor; 18 against.  Apparently, two of the GOP Senators who had privately committed to vote for Cathy Collins-Taylor reneged.

Cathy Collins-Taylor loses due to not getting three GOP votes.  Senators Bill Seitz and Kevin Coughlin were the only GOP Senators to vote yes.

I’d be stunned if the RGA hadn’t already aired an attack ad before the confirmation vote over the issue.
