Despite what liberals would have you believe nothing in the Constitution prevents a Supreme Court justice from being confirmed in an election year, and there’s more than enough time to act. There are 43 days until Election Day. The Senate confirmed Justice John Paul Stevens in 19 days, Sandra Day O’Connor in 33, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 42.

Here’s where the most vulnerable Senate Republicans stand on President Trump’s intention to have a vote before the election.

Susan Collins: No

Sen. Collins (R-ME) said that not only should there not be a vote but that the next president, whether it’s Trump or Biden, should select Ginsburg’s replacement.

Polls indicate Collins is trailing in Maine’s U.S. Senate race.

Martha McSally: Yes

Sen. McSally (R-AZ) said there should be a vote as soon as possible. She certainly knows that the Republican Party has a history of successfully rallying the base on this issue. Making her opinion known will help her in her challenging fight for reelection.

Cory Gardner: Not Confirmed

Sen. Gardner (R-CO) has not revealed where he stands on voting on a Supreme Court nominee before the election. His race is considered a toss-up.

Lisa Murkowski: No

Sen. Murkowski (R-AK) won’t vote to approve a Supreme Court justice until after the election. Though she’s not up for reelection, her opposition is noteworthy, as Republicans could only lose two more votes. Murkowski previously voted against the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

Thom Tillis: Yes

Sen. Tillis (R-NC) faces an uncertain future against a robust Democrat challenger. But he’s eager to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement, which he hopes will motivate North Carolina Republicans and independents to come out and vote for him.

Kelly Loeffler: Yes

Sen, Loeffler (R-GA), another Republican in a competitive race, is committed to fulfilling President Trump’s wishes, tweeting that “the future of our country is at stake.”

So far there are 2 of that number who don’t want to remain in the Senate, Collins and Murkowski. Let’s see if Gardner wants to join them on the sidelines.

I agree, Collins & Murkowski & Gardner claim to be Republicans so they are either with us or against! If they are against us, let’s replace them along with Anyone else on the fence!

Collins and Murkowski have been traitors to the Republican Party ever since Trump was elected. They may as well call themselves Socialistic Democrats or even out and out Communists. And yet they have the gall to ask for donations from me for their re-election. They can go suck an egg before they get a cent from me and many other true Republicans.

True enough. However, they still claim to be Republicans and allow the Republicans to have a majority. Without them, the Rs would be in deep dodo.

These two are so politically inept that they cannot recognize a political coup attempt to overthrow the U.S. Government. I can assure you that after serving the U.S. Government of over 11 years in Latin America I know a Coup d’état when I see one and this is, however, unbelievable to many Americans, exactly what is happening in the U.S. today.
