1991: The Senate Judiciary Committee deadlocks, 7-7, on the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court of the United States, sending the nomination to the full Senate without a recommendation. Thomas would be confirmed by a 52–48 vote on Oct. 15, 1991, the narrowest margin for approval in more than a century.
