“Sen. Jeff Flake, seen as a key swing vote who could either put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court or kill his chances, is not committing to voting for the nominee at a Friday morning Judiciary Committee markup,” Roll Call reports.
“The Arizona Republican sounded very conflicted Thursday evening following a meeting of the Senate Republican Conference after the Judiciary panel spent nearly nine hours Thursday hearing from Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her at a party decades ago when they were both in high school.”
USA Today: “Flake spoke for only one minute and said little. His brief, but likely vital appearance, near the end of the daylong hearing lent a cliffhanger quality to a nomination still hurtling toward a dramatic finish.”Save to Favorites
