Trump Has Enough GOP Votes to Confirm SCOTUS Pick, Despite Two GOP Defectors

Two Republican Senators who have been a pain in the side of conservatives and constitutionalism since President Trump took office.

Republican Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) are saying they don’t want to fulfill their obligations to vote on a new Supreme Court Justice as the U.S. Constitution requires them to do.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) over the weekend said the Senate shouldn’t hold a vote on a nominee until after Nov. 3. Going against everything our founders intended, all to play politics in the face of hurting the Republic.

The President has stated that he will be naming a woman to the highest court in the land, and that pick will be announced now on Saturday.

“So we win an election and those are the consequences, you know, it’s called ‘fill that seat,’ and that’s what we’re doing,” Trump told a rally crowd in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on Sept. 19. “I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman, it will be a woman.”

Republicans hold a 53–47 majority in the Senate. Even if Collins, Murkowski, and Romney vote with the Democrats, the GOP can still win with Vice President Mike Pence casting a vote to break a 50–50 tie.

Unfortunately for Democrats, Senator Mitt Romney announced Tuesday morning that he will vote and support the President’s nominee for the Supreme Court.
