  • Vox looks at the eight senators—three Republicans and five red-state Democrats—whose votes will make or break Kavanaugh's confirmation vote. Three of the Democrats voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch last year.
  • Politico looks at Thursday's hearing and decides the GOP's hiring of Rachel Mitchell to question Ford was a "blunder." She was "pushed to the sidelines" as soon as Kavanaugh began testifying, and wasn't heard from again after Sen. Lindsey Graham's rant against Democratic tactics.
  • In its list of takeaways from the hearing, the New York Times describes Ford's testimony as "raw and gripping" and Kavanaugh's as "aggressive, tearful, and partisan."
