"This is simply too distant and uncorroborated a story to warrant a new hearing or to delay a vote". Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to testify Monday.
Only 31 percent of USA adults polled said they were in favor of Kavanaugh's appointment.
Grassley said details about how the hearing would be conducted had not been worked out, including parameters for panel members posing questions or the possibility that committee Republicans could choose a single questioner.
Though Grassley hasn't announced a decision on the issue, activists are adamant that giving Kavanaugh's attorney the floor during Ford's testimony wouldn't be fair to Ford.
"Well, I would let the senators take their course", he said. "While no sexual assault survivor should be subjected to such an ordeal, Dr. Ford wants to cooperate with the Committee and with law enforcement officials".
Ford, 51, is a professor of psychology and a statistician at Palo Alto University who also teaches at Stanford.
If he was watching, one can only imagine how Judge Garland felt when he heard McConnell take the Senate floor Monday to accuse Democrats of flouting "standard bipartisan process" and "regular order" in the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Prof Ford declined to testify unless the FBI begins investigating the judge. The two appeared before a special Judiciary Committee hearing, told their separate stories, and Thomas ultimately was confirmed, 52-48.
But Jones says the FBI is well-equipped to conduct a quick investigation and interview potential witnesses.
Calling for the FBI "to reopen and complete the background investigation", Feinstein drew comparisons to the hearings that were held after Hill's allegations against Thomas surfaced in 1991. "If he she doesn't show up, that would be unfortunate". He stressed that Kavanaugh is eager to provide his testimony.
Criticism like that fed a Democratic narrative that the GOP's handling of Ford could jeopardize that party's election prospects in the age of #MeToo, the response to sexual abuse that has torched the careers prominent men.
Nevertheless, on Tuesday, Miranda tweeted that she knew both Kavanaugh and Ford and that "the incident was spoken of for days afterwards in school".
Yesterday, Sen. Jeff Flake said Ford had the option of testifying in closed session if she preferred that. Ford has said Judge witnessed the alleged assault.
This week Guerry joined more than 900 alumnae of the Holton-Arms School - a private school for girls in Bethesda, Maryland - in signing an open letter, voicing their support for Ford.
Committee Democrats quickly backed up the letter.
They are also unlikely to agree on an alternative date and the hearing could still go ahead without Mrs Ford. Ford says the investigation should happen before a Monday hearing at which she and Kavanaugh are invited to testify. Kavanaugh should stop lying, own up to it and apologize, ' she wrote on Tuesday morning.

"No, I'm not", Mr Trump said when asked if he was concerned what Manafort might say. "They have done now, supposedly, six background checks as Judge Kavanaugh has gone beautifully up a ladder".
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the same thing on Tuesday, but with a caveat. I feel so badly for him.
"No other OUTSIDE investigation is necessary", he wrote.
Her lawyer, Lisa Banks, told CNN her client has been "deflecting death threats and harassment". He will state his case before representatives of the United States Senate.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) believes men have no say in the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is offering in a letter to lawyers for Brett Kavanaugh's accuser to have his panel's investigators interview her wherever she wants. But he also appeared to side with the federal judge over the woman. "It can be closed, whatever Ms. Ford wants", said Sen.
On trade - a day after imposing 10 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports, to which China retaliated with $60 billion in additional tariffs on USA goods - Trump said "we've just started". The person said there should be no such discussion until more information about the alleged incident comes to light.
In a blog post on Monday, Lenora M. Lapidus, director of the ACLU's Women's Rights Project, echoed Hill's argument by encouraging members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to make sure they "get it right this time around" by not repeating the mistakes of the past. "We should not have gotten to this point". He does not want to risk allowing the Senate vote to lapse until after an election Republicans may lose.
And before Ford came along, no one had questioned his character either.
