WASHINGTON (AP) — Several Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have walked out of a hearing on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
Kamala Harris of California, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island left after the GOP chairman set a vote on the nomination for 1:30 p.m. Friday.
That was approved by a committee vote. Democrats say Republicans are rushing the confirmation.
During that vote, Hirono yelled: "''I strongly object! What a railroad job! No, no, NO."
