So Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) are reportedly against a Supreme Court confirmation vote until after inauguration day (1.20.21). Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins, a notoriously unreliable waffler, has said that confirmation hearings shouldn’t be held until after the 11.3 election. And if Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly defeats Republican incumbent Martha McSally (which is likely), he could be seated in the Senate “as early as 11.30, according to elections experts from both parties,” says a 9.19 N.Y. Times story. Three Republicans who want to wait plus Kelly — four Senate votes in opposition to Mitch McConnell‘s intention to expedite the process, and three if you don’t count Collins. Is there a chance that another Republican Senator or two might follow suit?
