    The confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has mobilized people in Maine, where Republican Sen. Susan Collins is still undecided on his fate.

    The process has inspired some women to protest, and some survivors of sexual assault to speak out. Now, a new coalition of men is joining the conversation.

    "We are picking a judge that will shape laws for generations," said Adam Lee. "What's the hurry?"

    Lee, a Democrat, spoke at a press conference with a bipartisan group of men who say they stand in solidarity with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. They asked for the FBI to have the opportunity to investigate multiple allegations against Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee votes.

    "My message to Senator Collins is pretty simple," said business owner Joshua Wojcik. "Pump the brakes. There's no reason to rush any of this. Nothing good in the history of work has ever come from rushing a promotion."

    "I hope and pray the Republican Party is on the right side of history with this issue," added Michael Cambareri, a registered Republican.

    The group includes independent voters, former Republicans, former politicians, and business owners in Maine. They said it was important to speak up to support women — but also important to let them be heard.

    "I believe men need to do a lot less talking, and a lot more listening," said Justin Alfond, the former Democratic Senate President.

    The press conference was held before Ford and Kavanaugh testified Thursday.

    Prior to the hearing, conservative radio host Ray Richardson said he believes Ford has credibility but questions if there is proof that Kavanaugh was her abuser.

    "I think you can say Dr. Ford was assaulted, and you can say Brett Kavanaugh didn't do it," said Richardson. "Both can be true."
