The Latest Positions of Key Senators on Ginsburg’s Replacement




It was nearly impossible on Saturday to separate the tributes to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from the immediate political jockeying over whether Republicans will force through a nomination with just 45 days until the election, after refusing to do so for months after Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016.

With Republicans maintaining a 53-to-47 majority in the U.S. Senate, and using Vice President Mike Pence as a tiebreaker, President Trump has room to lose a few Republicans and still confirm a potential nominee.

Here’s how the key players in the Senate have indicated they would move on the vacancy on the Supreme Court:




I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election.

The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.
