Susan Collins sier hun vil stemme ja til Kavanaugh og sørger dermed for at det blir flertall.

Lisa Murkowski sier hun vil stemme nei, men Demokraten Joe Manchin, fra West Virginia sier han vil stemme for «Judge Kavanaugh».Dermed beholder Republikanerne flertallet. Murkowskis frafall er kompensert.

Senator Bob Corker sier det var uttalelsene til Christine Fords venner som gjorde mest inntrykk på ham i den nye FBI-rapporten.

Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.), who has said he would vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh, told reporters earlier Thursday that he found the most significant interviews in the FBI report to be those from people close to Dr. Ford who wanted to corroborate her account and were “sympathetic in wishing they could, but they could not.”
