Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.
Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.
News: @SenatorCollins told me earlier this month in Maine that she would not seat a Supreme Court justice in October.
“I think that’s too close, I really do,” she said.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.
It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.
This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
Detroit Election Instructor Confirms There Will Be No Oversight to Help Poll Workers on Election Day
There will be no oversight.
The second week of the #DetroitLeaks revelations has started, with the story spreading virally throughout social media, being picked up by new outlets, and the issue of electoral integrity in Michigan entering the courts.
Big League Politics has more findings to share with regards to the audio from poll worker trainings in Detroit, including a clip of an instructor explaining how there will be nobody available to assist poll workers during the chaotic election next week.
“On election day, you will have numbers of troubleshooters like myself and different coordinators, but honestly speaking, it’s going to be hard to get a hold of someone, because it’s going to be ten people calling…at the same time,” the instructor explained.
The instructor essentially told the poll workers that they would be on their own throughout election day. She advised for beleaguered poll workers to cling to their check of operations document to handle election day operations.
The instructor gave an example of how one woman had to serve in five different positions in a particular precinct during a recent election, showing how the system is woefully ill-equipped to secure electoral integrity.
“If you have that check of operations, you can literally do everything yourself. She actually got paid for all five positions. She deserved it, sure, but she got paid for all five positions, and she says she did it,” the instructor explained.
The instructor noted that the poor poll worker called the “troubleshooters” over a dozen times and never received a single response back.
“She said that she left 15 messages. If you leave 15 messages, you definitely called the department and you definitely let them know that you needed help, but what do you do now because you have to still let voters vote,” the instructor concluded.
