But both had previously stated that if Ford's allegations are true they'd be disqualifying - and their votes are enough to sink Kavanaugh's bid for the high court.

She asserted that Republicans are rushing to confirm Kavanaugh because the court's "session is going to start in October and the President wants his guy there to, he hopes, help him evade criminal or civil proceedings".
Asking Kavanaugh to go first is "not doable" according to the source, noting he would need to respond to any new accusation that comes up at the hearing.
Democratic Senator Doug Jones said Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's high school friend, should be subpoenaed if he refuses to testify.
Kavanaugh was spotted at the White House on Thursday, and allies said he is eager to address the accusation.
