#N12BK: Kavanaugh hearing and accusers

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

More women have come forward accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

Kavanaugh denied allegations brought forward by one of the accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, during testimonies in front of the senate Thursday.

Prior to the hearing, more women came forward with sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh.

However, Kavanaugh gained the support of a Republican senator Friday, ensuring his nomination will advance to the full Senate.

Ford insists she's "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh attempted to rape her at a high school house-party in 1982.

At least two other women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh who has denied all claims.
