Unclear if Nevada GOP Sen. Heller still supports Kavanaugh

September 26, 2018

LAS VEGAS (AP) — It’s unclear if Nevada Sen. Dean Heller still intends to vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Heller said before sexual assault allegations were made public against Kavanaugh that he had “no reservations” about voting for him.

Heller’s office said Wednesday that Heller believes it’s important that initial accuser Christine Blasey (BLAH’-zee) Ford share her information with the Senate Judiciary Committee, as she’s scheduled to do Thursday, and that all senators work “in good faith.”

But his office did not respond to inquiries about whether Heller still intends to support Kavanaugh.

Heller received criticism last week for reportedly describing the allegations involving Kavanaugh as a “hiccup” and that he would be confirmed. Heller later said he does “not believe sexual assault allegations of any kind are a hiccup.”
