Huffpost reports,

"Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake's surprise call Friday for a delay in the final vote on Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation was affected by encounters with women "emboldened" to share their experiences and his desire to demonstrate that the "process is fair," he told reporters Friday.

He said it was "remarkable" how many people who "saw Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford [testify] were emboldened to come out and say what had happened to them," Flake told reporters. "I heard from friends, close friends. I had no idea."

Flake referred to his "interactions with a lot of people -- on the phone, email, text, walking around the Capitol, you name it."
