The Senate Judiciary Committee has once again rescheduled its confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as allegations of sexual assault mount against him.

Prior to the announcement, GOP Sens. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) both expressed reservations about voting to confirm him in light of the allegations.

Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify in a public hearing Thursday about the allegations. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse him of sexual assault, will also testify on Thursday.
