The Nevada Independent and The New York Times reported that Heller on Wednesday described the furor over sexual assault allegations involving Kavanaugh as a "hiccup" and that the judge would ultimately be confirmed.

Republicans' chances of keeping their majority in the US Senate have become shakier as races in red states like Texas have tightened, but the party's most vulnerable member insists he's bullish about his re-election.

This is an incredibly glib response to the accusation by California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh, at age 17, forced her into a room, groped her, tried to strip off her clothing, and covered her mouth to muffle her screams, while his friend looked on and laughed.

On Thursday, Heller said "hiccup" did not refer to the sexual assault allegations themselves, but the way Democrats had handled the situation. "I think it's important for Dr. Ford to have the opportunity to share her story with the Judiciary Committee in public or private should she choose to do so".

The accusations from Christine Blasey Ford, denied vehemently by Kavanaugh, threaten to slow his Senate confirmation vote, with Democrats saying the FBI should investigate the charges, a demand that is not gaining traction among Republicans.

Octopuses drugged with ecstasy are more friendlier and social, study says
The reports say that they also reached out and touched the octopus in what was deemed as "non-aggressive manner". At first, when they had ingested too much of the drug their breathing became erratic and they turned white.

Trump will be in Nevada supporting Senator Dean Heller, now up for reelection against Democrat Jacky Rosen. Trump narrowly lost Nevada to Hillary Clinton in 2016 despite his deep ties to Las Vegas - he has a golden-hued hotel just off the famed Strip - and repeatedly campaigning in the state.

Heller's last re-election, in 2012, was razor-thin.

With President Donald Trump in the White House, Republicans are facing an uphill battle to court female voters this year.
