Ford told lawmakers she was "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh attacked her, but Kavanaugh forcefully denied he had assaulted her or any other woman. But he didn't say that was such great news. "We've always had that", though in general "it clearly is wider than it used to be".
The tone inside the courtroom was collegial, in contrast to the venom of Kavanaugh's confirmation fight.
Republicans had hoped to confirm Kavanaugh in time for him to join the court on October 1, the start of the new term.
The 76-year-old McConnell, who's been in the Senate since 1985 and majority leader since 2015, said he wants more women in the Senate and on the Judiciary Committee in particular.
Kavanaugh says all four of the clerks who will work for him at the high court are women. Meanwhile, just 29% of registered Republicans said the same, down from 30% in September. An FBI report into sexual misconduct allegations made against Kavanaugh, has not been released to the public.
"Seventy-two percent of voters who are very angry about the treatment of Kavanaugh are more likely to vote in the upcoming elections".
"It was all made up, it was fabricated and it's a disgrace", he said.
But while most men - 52 percent - said they would vote for the GOP's candidates if the elections were held today, according to the CNN poll, history would perhaps advise against adopting a midterm strategy relying heavily on male voter turnout.

After Murkowski came out in opposition to Kavanaugh last week, Trump told The Washington Post over the weekend that she would "never recover" and that "the people from Alaska will never forgive her for what she did". Even Donald Trumpblasted Murkowski for her position, calling it "really unacceptable".
However, Grassley has broken with McConnell on other high-profile issues. "He could be the world's most conservative human being, and I supported him long before I became a politician".
The survey produced nearly no good news for Democrats, who earlier this year expected to benefit from historical trends that show the party of first-term presidents nearly always lose congressional seats in the first midterm election after their inauguration.
"The public got mad at us and felt sympathy for President Clinton", he said.
"I think it'll help the president get re-elected", he said.
McConnell added that "this business of presidential harassment may or may not quite be the victor they think it is".
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has said he's starting his role without bitterness following his bruising confirmation process. He bemoaned what he considered Democrats tying the Senate in knots with procedural votes on less controversial executive branch nominations.
While the president certainly bashed the senator for her vote, some of her colleagues in the Republican Party have said that Murkowski, like any other senator, had the right to believe - and vote - the way she chooses. Republicans Lindsey Graham of SC and John Cornyn of Texas have been among those mentioned. I have to go first, right? In April, the committee voted to approve bipartisan legislation to protect special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired in the midst of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
