Next vote on confirmation of Lynch nomination around 1:30pm

Cloture was invoked on the Lynch nomination by a vote of 66-34. There will now be up to 2 hours for debate equally divided prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination. We hope to be able to yield back some time and begin the confirmation vote at 1:30pm range. If all time is used, the vote would occur at 2:15pm.
