The Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to approve Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court.
The 13-6 vote sends the nomination to the full Senate, where she's expected to be confirmed as early as next week to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.
Just one Republican, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, joined Democrats in supporting President Barack Obama's second Supreme Court nominee.
