In 2019 Senator McConnell stated that he would confirm a new Supreme Court Justice during an election year. Furthermore, earlier this year Senator McConnell reaffirmed his position that he would confirm a Justice in 2020.
However, in 2016 McConnell vehemently denied President Obama's Supreme Court nominee claiming the Senate couldn't appoint a new Justice during an election year. Senator McConnell later stated that stonewalling President Obama's nominee for many months was one of his proudest moments in his life. The hypocrisy is nauseating. It will take 4 senators to stand up to this hypocrisy of future nominees to prevent a Pence tie-breaking vote.
It would be a double standard to fill an open Supreme Court seat just 43 days away from an election. Please do as the American people ask and do not appoint a nominee until 2021, as precedent was set in 2016.
