Sen. Donnelly says vote on SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh should be postponed

Senator Joe Donnelly has made a statement about a scheduled vote regarding U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Donnelly, who met with the nominee but has yet to say if he will vote in favor of putting him on the Supreme Court, issued the statement on Monday, Sep. 17, in reaction to allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

Donnelly said “Given the nature of these allegations, and the number of outstanding questions, I believe the Judiciary Committee should hold off on Thursday’s scheduled vote.”

Kavanaugh was accused by a woman of an attempted rape with an accomplice when he was a high school student, and stated that she would be willing to testify to that effect.
