Skip to comments.McConnell: I Will Fill Ginsburg's Seat With Trump's Nominee
Posted on 09/18/2020 9:13:51 PM PDT by Helicondelta
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Friday night that he intends to allow for a floor vote in the Senate to confirm a new nominee made by President Donald Trump to replace the Supreme Court vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia's death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president's second term. We kept our promise. Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president's Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year," he said.

Watch Trump's poll numbers go up as the democrats try to tear her down. And no way Collins and Murkowski vote against.
Honestly i see more positives for him to do this than negatives.
so much to pray for the next several weeks

“Americans elected a Republican Senate majority...”
Smart move because we could very well lose the senate in the upcoming election, especially with the recent court rulings and expected democrat cheating.
Yep. It has to be done NOW.
The Republicans run the Senate and are the same party of the current President. Whenever Republicans are in charge, the Democrats still act like they’re in charge, and the Republicans act like the Democrats are in charge. It has been the pattern for as long as I can remember. Sprout a spine, grow some chrome-plated, brass balls and at least pretend to be in charge — and process RBG’s replacement.
No Souters please!!!!!!!!!!
Over our dead bodies. Literally. Reza Aslan
The Democrats justify replacing Justice Ginsburg as soon as possible with their published post-election plans. Following Pres. Trump winning decisively on election day, the Dems have vowed to challenge everything in court, up to and including to the Supreme Court.
McConnell knows his political future depends on this.
This is a god send that shows that our country has not yet been forsaken. This is likely to prevent the Democrats from stealing this election.
I hope its a black female conservative judge just to see the Dems struggle to attack her! LOL!!
The leftwing media are going nuts with that ‘replacement after a new president’ quote which sounds suspiciously like a handler and not a dying woman.
Your song didn’t play the last two times.
Just when the rare adults in the Rat party were trying to save their looted polls its back to mugging fence sitters.
This will atone for the senate ( including R votes) conforming an obvious commie justice in the first place.
The question is, does Mitch have the votes to confirm a nominee????
The GOP is in control by 53 to 47, but Murkowski of Alaska has said she wont vote on a nominee before the election. So that brings us down to 52. Any other defectors, holding to some principles that we should wait till after the election to deal with this? Collins, McSally, Joni Ernst, Thom Tillis, Mitt Romney?
I hope McConnell wouldnt have made such a statement if he doesnt have the committments from enough Republicans to make it happen. Very soon, he will have to put up or shut up.
Time to be the bulldozer or the bulldozee.
