Multiple GOP Senators Will NOT Approve Trump SCOTUS Nominee

Currently, the Republican party holds a slight edge in the Senate.

That edge, however, is now gone concerning Trump and McConnell pushing through a Supreme Court nominee before the election.

So far, two GOP Senators have stated they will NOT vote for a nominee this close to an election, and it could be many, many more.

Coming Back to Haunt Them

First up was Senator Murkowski (R-AK), who stated it would be a “double standard” to approve a SCOTUS nominee this close to the election after Obama was denied his nominee nine months before the 2020 election.

Senator Collins (R-ME) has also gone on the record that she would not vote in favor of the nominee at this time of the election season…

While he has not yet made an announcement, it is a fairly safe bet that Senator Romney (R-UT) would also not approve a SCOTUS nominee right now.

He has opposed Trump at every turn, so why would he stop now?

More Could Follow

When Obama was denied, a slew of Republican senators vowed to never vote for a court nominee post-primary season.

For instance, Senator Cornyn (R-TX) had stated, “Confirming a new Supreme Court Justice during a presidential election year for a vacancy arising that same year is not common in our nation’s history; the last time it happened was in 1932.

“And it has been almost 130 years since a presidential election year nominee was confirmed for a vacancy arising the same year under divided government as we have today.”

Senator Graham (R-S.C.) made a similar statement…

The list goes on and on.

Now, since politicians rarely do what they say, it does not necessarily mean Graham or Cornyn would vote no, but Collins, Murkowski, and Romney means only one more would be needed to put the vote down.

Trump may nominate someone soon, but I would seriously doubt if that individual would be approved if McConnell does as planned and puts that name on the floor for a vote.
