Sources close to the League reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, (R-KY) filed a cloture motion yesterday on the BCFP nominee Kathy Kraninger, meaning that the vote will be sometime after Nov. 26.

It seems probable that Republicans won’t have a lot of margin for error, as retiring Sen.
