BREAKING: Prominent GOP Senator Has Already Vowed To SKIP Vote On New Supreme Court Justice

Although Republicans have the majority in the Senate, it appears the vote to confirm a new Supreme Court justice is in jeopardy.

Right before the announcement that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died Friday evening, Sen. Lisa Murkowski said in an interview that she would not vote to confirm a nominee this close to the election.


“I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election,” she said, according to AlaskaPublic.org.

Murkowski said her reasoning is based on the same reasoning that held up the confirmation of former President Barack Obama’s final nominee to the Supreme Court.

“That was too close to an election, and that the people needed to decide,” Murkowski said, recalling McConnell’s argument at the time. “That the closer you get to an election, that argument becomes even more important.”

Republicans currently control 53 seats in the United States Senate, so they could technically  force a nominee through before the election. However, with questionable votes like Mitt Romney, we can't be too sure.
