After hours of testimony, the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped up hearing testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh with a series of direct questions from Louisiana Senator John Kennedy.

Kennedy's yes-or-no questions gave Kavanaugh one last chance to directly deny many of the allegations made against him by Ford and others about sexually inappropriate behavior when he was in high school and college. Earlier, Ford told the senators that Kavanaugh attempted to pin her to a bed and cover her mouth while groping her at a high school party in Maryland in the early 1980s, a claim Kavanaugh denies.

Republicans want to hold a vote on Kavanaugh's U.S. Supreme Court nomination tomorrow.
