Thank you, Archila and Gallagher!

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) cornered in elevator.

The Democrats wouldn’t do it. The Republicans wouldn’t do it. But after Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher cornered Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) in an elevator yesterday and demanded he act, things started changing. When Sen. Flake returned to the hearing room, he worked out a deal to allow one week for the FBI to further investigate the Kavanaugh/Ford impasse.

What would have been an immediate vote to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination became a one-week postponement, thanks to two brave women who faced down a senator and demanded justice … and, of course, Sen. Flake’s commendable move to do the right thing. Kudos to all three.
