Democrats are all in ‘Code Red’ mode and even forgetting to give condolences to the family of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Senator Chuck Schumer tweeted out a warning that there should be no vote for a Supreme Court Justice until we elect a new president:
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.
Not even a ‘Rest in Peace’ for Justice Ginsburg but a firm push to stop the normal process of nominating and voting on a new Justice before the 2020 election.
The left is even calling for insurrection if they don’t get their way:They are openly calling for insurrection if the Senate follows the Constitution https://t.co/YtdgwDh9Kd
Of course, some cowardly Republican Senators have already caved to say they won’t vote until the election.
Sen. Susan Collins has told Jonathan Martin of NYT that she will not vote for a new Supreme Court Justice in October or during a lame duck session if Donald Trump loses reelection.
Romney has reportedly said he wouldn’t vote until after the election:
Romney hates and abuses the pro-life movement. This is nothing short of a complete betrayal of those who defend preborn children. https://t.co/kA8q8lgfvM
And Lisa Murkowski is predictably not voting:
Shortly before the announcement that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died, Sen. Lisa Murkowski said in an interview with Alaska Public Media: "I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election." https://t.co/sHWUhqff1U

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell had this to say about a vote: “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
