The battle to confirm Donald Trump’s nominee is about to kick into full gear.
How the fight ends could determine the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election.
And now Donald Trump got an out of left field surprise about filling Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.
When Donald Trump announced he would nominate a candidate to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Republicans would hold a vote the immediate question is do Senate Republicans have the votes to confirm President Trump’s nominee?
Alaska pro-abortion RINO Lisa Murkowski immediately came out with a statement expressing her opposition to confirming President Trump’s nominee.
“I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election,” Murkowski declared.
Those comments Murkowski made in August when a Supreme Court vacancy was just a hypothetical.
“When Republicans held off Merrick Garland because nine months prior to the election was too close, we needed to let the people decide,” Murkowski exclaimed. “And I agreed to do that. If we say now that months prior to the election is OK when nine months is not, that is a double standard and I don’t believe we should do it.”
But just days later, Murkowski softened her opposition to President Trump’s as-of-yet unnamed nominee.
“I know everybody wants to ask the question, ‘will you confirm the nominee?’ We don’t have a nominee yet. You and I don’t know who that is. And so I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is,” Murkowski declared.
Murkowski voted against Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 because Murkowski is a pro-abortion fanatic that thought Kavanaugh would be the fifth vote to overturn Roe v. Wade.
So the vast majority of Trump supporters remain skeptical she would support Trump’s nominee to replace Ginsburg given that the nominee will be an all but certain vote to overturn Roe.
But Murkowski is running for re-election in 2022.
In 2010 Murkowski lost a GOP Senate primary to Tea Party candidate Joe Miller.
Miller self-destructed in the general election and Murkowski ended up winning a write-in campaign.
Donald Trump already threatened to campaign against Murkowski in 2022.
And if Murkowski votes against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee in an election year she may not be able to wage a write in campaign a second time.
Republican voters have no patience for RINOs that oppose judicial nominees.
Filling the judiciary is one of the only issues that unites establishment and grassroots conservatives.
Establishment and donor class Republicans want justices that will strike down regulations and reject big government power grabs.
Conservatives demand justices that will defend their values in culture war cases.
If Murkowski votes against the President’s nominee she could alienate both wings of the Republican Party and seal her political doom in 2022.
