Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who voted yes to advance Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Senate floor, asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay the vote for one week so the FBI can investigate.
Why it matters: Currently, the numbers stand 49 in support for Kavanaugh and 47 opposed. But there are still key swing votes from Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) in the balance. Kavanaugh's nomination now goes to the Senate floor for a full vote, but it is uncertain when the vote will take place.
