Here's what we're following today.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham told Fox News late Monday that Republicans have the votes to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court pick before the Nov. 3 presidential election, according to the Associated Press. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the case on the Senate floor that voters elected a GOP majority to confirm judicial nominees. The late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol on Friday, a first for a woman. 

Slow-moving Tropical Storm Beta has settled along the Texas Gulf Coast, flooding streets in Houston and Galveston hours after making landfall amid an unusually busy hurricane season. Beta is also headed for parts of Louisiana that haven’t recovered from Hurricane Laura last month.
