Questioning of the 53-year-old appellate judge wound down without him revealing much about his judicial stances or making any serious mistakes that might jeopardize his confirmation.
Kavanaugh also doesn't seem to have changed many minds on the GOP-run Senate Judiciary Committee. The Democrats' best hope of stopping Kavanaugh - who could swing the court further to the right for decades - would be branding him as a justice who might vote to overturn the ruling, attracting the votes of two Republican senators who support abortion rights. That prospect worries Democrats and heartens Republicans on volatile issues including abortion, gun rights, gay rights, the death penalty, religious liberty and business regulation.
