She acknowledged the anguish of the protesters who interrupted the historic Senate vote, telling reporters afterward that "I was closing my eyes and praying".
"I do not consent, where's my representation", one yelled.
The Senate narrowly voted Friday to limit debate on Kavanaugh's nomination, advancing it to Saturday's final confirmation vote. A report from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University said ME is the top state in the nation for television ad spending related to Kavanaugh's confirmation.
With tensions simmering, Pence got an earful from activists who booed and chanted "Vote them out!" as he walked to his motorcade.
While Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Kavanaugh's confirmation was a shining moment for the GOP heading into next month's pivotal elections, GOP Gov. John Kasich of OH predicted "a good year" for Democrats and said he wonders about "the soul of our country" in the long term after the tumultuous hearings.
However he says he doesn't really have an opinion on Kavanaugh who was confirmed onto the Supreme Court on Saturday.
In North Dakota, Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer has pulled comfortably ahead of Democratic Sen. He is up for re-election in West Virginia, a state Trump won overwhelmingly in 2016.

Meng's wife said on Sunday that she hadn't heard from him since he left the French city of Lyon at the end of September. Mr Meng's wife Grace, who remains in France , has been placed under police protection after receiving threats.
Flake, like Collins, believed that the FBI investigation, which did not corroborate the sexual assault allegations, was thorough. If there is a 50-50 tie, Vice President Mike Pence would break it in favor of Kavanaugh.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the economy created 134,000 seasonally adjusted new jobs in September. The unemployment rate among young people (under 30) was 15.9 percent, the unemployment rate among women was 13.4 percent.
That rare procedural maneuver left Kavanaugh with the same two-vote margin he'd have had if Murkowski and Daines had both voted. On ABC's "This Week", Hirono was pressed on whether she might support potential future Democratic efforts to impeach Kavanaugh.
