Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is telling evangelical activists the Senate will “plow right through” and move to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
McConnell told the annual Values Voter conference Friday “in the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the United States Supreme Court.” He urges the Republican-leaning activists to “keep the faith” and predicts senators will do their jobs.
McConnell’s predictions come as California college professor Christine Blasey (BLAH’-zee) Ford accuses Kavanaugh of sexual assault more than 30 years ago when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
Negotiations have been ongoing on whether Ford will testify next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
