Sen. Jeff Flake said Friday he anticipates supporting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the final Senate vote.

Asked how he will vote, the Arizona Republican said "yes, unless something big were to change. I don't see what would."

Flake had forced a one-week delay and an extended FBI investigation into Kavanaugh.

The judge's nomination cleared a major hurdle Friday morning, as the Senate passed a narrow 51-49 vote. A final vote is likely this weekend, according to Friday reports.
