Republicans can confirm Kavanaugh along party lines, but to do so, they can only afford to lose one vote.
Republicans appointed Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Ford, and she led off the questioning of Kavanaugh.
"I think that would be a big mistake", Wallace added.
Ford said she was "willing" but also hoping that the committee or a representative "would come to me, but then I realized that was an unrealistic request".
At a fundraiser at his hotel Wednesday, Trump said Kavanaugh "knocked it out of the park" and called the hearing "painful" to watch. He has denied all the allegations.

"But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy", he continued. The full Senate could vote as early as Monday. "The Senate must vote!"

Speaking to Kavanaugh, Graham said, "Are you aware that at 9:23 on the night of July the 9th, the day you were nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump, Senator Schumer said, 23 minutes after your nomination, 'I'll oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have". "That's a lot of wisdom from a 10-year-old", he said choking up. "We mean no ill will".
The judge repeatedly refused to answer senators' questions about the hard-party atmosphere that has been described from his peer group at Georgetown Prep and Yale, treating them dismissively.
The allegations against Mr Kavanaugh by Blasey Ford, a psychology professor in California, have threatened to derail Mr Trump's bid to tilt the nation's highest court to the right for years to come. "I liked beer. I still like beer". "I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford. She's as much of a victim as you are, ' he noted.
