Here and Now

October 5, 2018: Hour 1

We discuss the latest on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, after the Senate cleared a key procedural hurdle Friday by voting to end debate and move the nomination forward. Also, Nadia Murad, a Yazidi woman who was once enslaved by the Islamic State, and Denis Mukwege, a gynecologist in the Democratic Republic of Congo, have both won the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize for their activism against sexual violence. And we take a look at one of the country's most closely watched Senate races with Joe Schoenmann, host and senior producer of KNPR's "State of Nevada," as our Senate Tracker series continues ahead of November's midterm elections. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Oct. 5, 2018 full broadcast.
