Sen. Collins: Next President Should Select Supreme Court Justice

'My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed...'

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Me., sided with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the argument about filling the Supreme Court seat that belonged to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

She said the person who wins the 2020 presidential election should choose the next Supreme Court nominee.

Collins did not explicitly state that she would vote against President Donald Trump’s nominee if the Senate held a vote on his or her confirmation prior to the Nov. 3rd election.

Ginsburg’s granddaughter said that her grandmother’s dying wish was for Trump and the Senate to forego nominating and confirming a new Supreme Court justice until after the election, Fox News reported.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” said Clara Spera, Ginsburg’s granddaughter.

Collins, who campaigns on her credentials as a squishy, establishment RINO, has been a consistent crack in the Senate’s GOP majority.

She split from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he would keep his pledge to hold a vote on Trump’s nominee, even in an election year.

“President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate,” he said in a statement.

McConnell’s statement came as Trump tweeted his intentions to the Republican Party.
