BREAKING: Mitt Romney Makes His Decision on SCOTUS Vote

...

Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, President Trump and Majority Leader McConnell confirmed they would be moving forward with a Senate vote on her replacement — much to the dismay of the media and Senate Democrats.

...

Since the announcement, liberals have put pressure on Senate Republicans to reject the nomination and oppose a vote until after the election.

...

Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski both immediately said they would oppose the vote (SHOCK!), but Utah Senator Mitt Romney avoided answering the question.

Until now.

The former Republican nominee for President just confirmed he would, in fact, support a vote.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Romney said “the historical precedent of election-year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.”

“The Constitution gives the president the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees,” he continued.

“Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the president’s nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”

    Romney merely said there should be a vote. I would be really surprised if that vote (from Romney) will be to confirm.

    Yes, he said he would “consider” a vote. He has been known to be a turncoat before and vote with the Democrats, so this is not exactly the great news it may seem to be.How many times has he voted against President Trump? Would anyone be that surprised if he did it again.

    Interesting how two female senators aren’t excited to approve a conservative female judge to the Supreme Court. So sad.
