McGrath Flip-flops on Kavanaugh Confirmation
By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE - U.S. Senate candidate Amy McGrath said she would have voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court and then just hours later she changed her mind.

The Courier Journal reports that the reversal came after her comments were slammed on social media by both liberals and conservatives with some saying they would not donate to the Kentucky Democrat's campaign to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The former Marine fighter pilot made the comment about Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault, in an interview with the Courier Journal Wednesday.

McGrath tweeted hours later, "I was asked earlier today about Judge Brett Kavanaugh and I answered based upon his qualifications to be on the Supreme Court. But upon further reflection and further understanding of his record, I would have voted no."
