The Senate judicial committee hearings for Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh galvanized voters on both sides of the aisle.

USF distinguished professor emerita and political scientist Susan MacManus tells Intersection the hearings are going to spike turnout in November.
