The already heated battle between Republicans and Democrats over the presidential election just escalated into a massive firestorm, after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Friday night.
Despite demands from the Democrats to hold off appointing a replacement, President Trump has said he will do his constitutional duty and announce his nominee to fill the vacancy on Saturday, and has confirmed that his nominee will be a woman.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to move forward and bring a vote to the floor, and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Monday evening that Senate Republicans have “the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election.”
A report published on Tuesday states, “Republicans are cautiously optimistic that the looming fight to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death will benefit President Trump’s reelection chances.”
“It’s hard to see how this doesn’t help Republicans politically. The Supreme Court fight reframes the election in a way that’s helpful for President Trump. Rather than focusing on his tweets and handling of COVID, many voters will now focus on the Supreme Court,” reasoned GOP strategist Alex Conant.
