The Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines on Friday to advance Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the Senate floor.

The vote follows Thursday’s multi-hour testimony from Kavanaugh and California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who accused the nominee of sexual assault during a high school house party.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called for a delay up to a week for an investigation. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said the timing of the vote was up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
