There is a long tradition that you donât do this in an election year.â 2018: Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): âIf an opening comes in the last year of President Trumpâs term, and the primary process has started, weâll wait to the next election.â 2016: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): âI donât think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this presidentâs term - I would say that if it was a Republican president.â 2016: Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.): âThe very balance of our nationâs highest court is in serious jeopardy. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will do everything in my power to encourage the president and Senate leadership not to start this process until we hear from the American people.â 2016: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa): âA lifetime appointment that could dramatically impact individual freedoms and change the direction of the court for at least a generation is too important to get bogged down in politics.
