AP Alaska's weekend plans:
PORTLAND, Maine — The end of four days of contentious confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is shifting the focus back to potential swing votes like Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. If Collins votes yes, then he is likely confirmed. She and Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska would likely have to both vote "no" for Kavanaugh to be blocked.
