Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas was forced to leave a Washington, D.C. restaurant after being met by protesters chanting "we believe survivors".

In one of the videos, a protester claiming to be a constituent of Cruz asks the Texas lawmaker if he will vote for Kavanaugh to be confirmed.

"I'm a survivor of sexual assault. Do you believe survivors, sir?"

"There are people now that have come forward and who have said Brett Kavanaugh have attacked them", she said. Could you talk to him about that?

According to a pair of videos posted online, a group of opponents to the U.S. Supreme Court confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh hounded U.S. Sen. "Cruz has been friends with creep Kavanaugh for 20 years". Although Cruz described Kavanaugh as "unquestionably qualified" during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier in September, he admitted that the allegations were severe enough to warrant a closer look. "Senator, I have a right to know what your position is on Brett Kavanaugh".

"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process, and we're looking for a fair process where I can be heard and defend my integrity my lifelong record", he said in an interview on Fox News Monday night.

"Vote no on Kavanaugh!" one protester screamed at him.

That is obviously in reference to Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX), who is facing off against Cruz in the 2018 midterms.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations of sexual assault against him, insisting that they were a smear campaign, USA Today reported. She and Judge Kavanaugh will testify about the allegations on Thursday.
