Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was chased out of a Washington D.C. restaurant by protesters Monday night, as tensions over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh heated up with more allegations surfacing. Videos posted on social media by “Smash Racism DC” showed a large group of protesters chanting, “We believe survivors.”

Angry protesters confronted Cruz as he ate dinner in the restaurant with his wife, Heidi Cruz.

The senator remained clam throughout, and said, “God bless you.” He added, “Can you let my wife through?” as he and his wife stood up to leave.

“Vote no on Kavanaugh!” one protester screams. “Cancel Kavanaugh for women’s rights.”

One of the protesters, who said she herself was a survivor of a sexual assault, approached Cruz and tried to start a dialogue about Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual misconduct.

“Do you believe survivors, sir?” the woman said, adding, “I’m a constituent. I’d love to know what your vote is going to be tonight. I know that you’re very close friends with Mr Kavanaugh. And do you believe survivors, sir?”

Cruz ignored her and prepared to walk out. He said only, “God bless you,” to which the woman responded, “God bless you too.”

On Monday, women’s rights group UltraViolet Action also gathered outside Cruz’s office in Austin, calling for Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to be withdrawn. Each protester outside Cruz's office carried a sign telling their story and experience with sexual assault.

Cruz has been targeted by the protesters as he has been an outspoken supporter of the nominee. He also talked about his long-standing friendship with Kavanaugh.

At Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing earlier this month, Cruz delivered the opening remarks: “Kavanaugh, welcome. Welcome to your family and to your friends. Demonstrating your good judgment, your wife was born and raised in West Texas, and you and she have been good friends of Heidi and mine for 20 years. Thank you for your decades of public service.”

On Sunday, attorney Michael Avenatti said he was representing a woman with "credible information" regarding Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge. However, he added his client was not alleged victim Deborah Ramirez — Kavanaugh's second sexual assault accuser.

“We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify,” Avenatti tweeted Sunday night. “The nomination must be withdrawn.”

Avenatti’s comments came few hours after the New Yorker published a story Sunday outlining sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh made by former college classmate — Ramirez.
