And some prominent Republicans, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Sen.

After the allegations against Kavanaugh were scrutinized, principled Americans saw that it was wrong to presume Kavanaugh guilty without evidence and permit the Democrats to assassinate his character.

His remarks on Murkowski were part of a wide-ranging interview in which McConnell acknowledged that the extended fight over confirming Kavanaugh has widened an existing gender gap in which Republicans trail Democrats in support among women.

Described by some GOP observers as a "crucifixion", Kavanaugh's treatment at the hands of Senators Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and others has unified a previously fractured Republican Party. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a key swing vote, said she would oppose the Democratic measure, with her office noting that while short-term plans are "not ideal" she wants Alaskans to have options for cheaper coverage. Sen.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he's expecting a "relatively lively" lame-duck session of Congress after next month's midterm elections, including a possible partial government shutdown over funding for President Donald Trump's promised border wall.

The RNC chairwoman said she wasn't surprised, because the way the Democrats, particularly Senator Dianne Feinstein, handled the Blasey-Ford letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual abuse 36 years ago was "shameful". "Nobody's gonna beat her". Republicans slammed Clinton for her statement, especially as it came after Republicans were "shot, stabbed, doxxed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats", in the age of the Trump administration. Republicans have promoted them as a low-priced option for strapped consumers after years of steadily rising premiums, which they blame on Obama's law, and GOP candidates will be happy to use Wednesday's vote to make that point.

"If confirmed, I'll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks", he said. Murkowski voted against advancing Kavanaugh's nomination and "present" on the final vote.

He said it was unprecedented for a new justice to face such a situation.

The allegations - that Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted Ford in high school - led to an emotional day of Senate testimony by Kavanaugh and Ford, two weeks of controversy, and a reopened FBI investigation that many Democrats found too limited to be legitimate.

"Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception", he said.

The public nature of a case previous year involving former 9th Circuit judge Alex Kozinski, who was accused of sexual misconduct, was unusual.
