Two GOP senators say election should determine fate of SCOTUS nomination

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have called for the Senate to delay voting on a new Supreme Court justice until after the winner of the 2020 election is declared. ’In fairness to the American people ... the decision on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court should be made by the President who is elected on November 3rd,’ Collins said.

Not at all for over a hundred years the Democrats and the republicans have always done it this way. "Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year." https://www.republicanleader.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/mcconnell-statement-on-the-passing-of-justice-ruth-bader-ginsburg fake narrative!

She's the quintessential RINO. Her role is to stand behind the Republicans and knife them in the back on the critical votes. No Democrats ever do this because they'd be strung up on a tree in the capitol park.

So why should president trump wait ??? Doesn’t he have the right to nominate a judge ??? Answer yes he does have the right .... and why would he please the same people who have been wanting to impeach him since the day he became president????? Know matter what he does in their eyes it won’t be good enough ....

She's up for reelection they should just put in the Democrat, she's one actually, but just causes drama pretending to be a rebel republican.

C’mon Alaska !!! Next time you want to send a Republican to the senate, SEND A REPUBLICAN! When she’s up for re-election primary her out or send a Democrat, at least we can expect Democrat to do this.

Trump was elected for 4 years, to, among other things, nominate SCJustices. Not 3 years, 9 months.

Collins, Murkowski, and Romney have no business even being in the GOP. You can always count on them to vote against the GOP. Republicans need to grow a spine and give the boot to these RINOs once and for all.

Tow the party line on the vote or loose all seats on all committees forever or until you change parties, whichever comes first.

Trump needs ylto visit alaska and out some pressure on her. He also needs campaign against Susan Collins. She's up for reelection. If they vote Democrat who cares about they claim to be republican. They need to know there are consequences of playing games constantly.

Story has this wrong; it is a 2nd Republican CUCK who says this garbage. It is typical of the Republicans to reflexively show their yellow belly (stained yellow from their urine) and seek to sabotage any political advantage they may have. There is no reason, obligation, or duty to withhold from nominating and confirming a justice to the SCOTUS. It is disgusting that there are still these spineless, testicleless Repuicans in the party.

People have already cast their votes, it's ridiculous to confirm a SC nominee while people are actually voting. This is the McConnell rule and this is way closer to election than his lame ass excuse.
