Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona says it’s a “tough call” on whether to support Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court after his dramatic testimony on a sexual assault accusation. The Republican is among a handful of undecided senators on Kavanaugh. He is a member of the Judiciary Committee, which is set to vote Friday morning on Kavanaugh’s nomination. The senator was weighing his vote after testimony Thursday from California psychologist Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh groped her and tried to take off her clothes when they were teens. Kavanaugh, testifying second, forcefully denied the accusation.

Flake says Ford’s account “was compelling, but she’s lacking corroboration from those who were there.” Asked how he will vote, Flake says, “let me process it.”

GOP Sen. Bob Corker says he’ll be voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The Tennessee Republican said Thursday that Kavanaugh is “qualified to serve.” Corker says it took “courage” for Kavanaugh’s accuser Ford to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee. But he says the testimony presented no evidence to corroborate her allegation that he sexually assaulted her when they were teens.
