Utah Senator @MittRomney is onboard for a vote before the election. That now means 51 Republicans will vote.
(Excerpt) Read more at twitter.com ...
Trump: “I will be announcing my Supreme Court Nominee on Saturday, at the White House! Exact time TBA.”
Yeah, but will he vote Yea or Nay?
He’s onboard to vote . . . does that mean he will vote yea?
Let's get ACB on SCOTUS!
I dont trust romney. Ill believe it when i see it.
Never would have happened without DJT.
Even better news is that the leftists are going to start burning down their cities again!
That’ll make more Trump votes!
Romney will vote no with the Dems
you watch ... this is the only Republican who voted for Impeachment
Even Collins & Murkowski didn’t
Home free? Not necessarily. He could favor a vote...in which he could vote “no”.I’m convinced that there’s nobody throwing firebombs in Portland who hates Trump more than Mittens.
He wants to be re-elected and knows that no vote meant he doesnt get out of the convention. No courage here.
See Post #11
This does not surprise me...say what you want about Romney, but he has been very good on judges.
He's a yes.
You and a lot of folks.
Never trust a back stabber. For obvious reasons.
I guess the liberal media will go back to "hate the racist white privilege Romney" mode now.
When Cocaine Mitch declared a vote would happen I felt pretty good because he has a stellar record when it comes to knowing his hard vote count.
I haven’t heard anyone mention this, but, remember that up until the start of the 2017 hearings for Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, the Senate rules allowed for filibusters of Supreme Court nominees.
Chuck Schumer tried to start a filibuster over Gorsuch’s nomination, and the response was that Mitch McConnell went for the “nuclear option”, and changed the rules so that they can’t filibuster Supreme Court nominees any longer.
If the filibuster rule were still in place, I bet that a nomination now would be filibustered, on the “high principle” that we are so close to the election, that we shouldn’t be filling a Supreme Court vacancy now.
So for some of what is going on, we can thank Chuck Schumer for starting a chain of events which led to the end of Supreme Court filibusters.
