Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Monday night that Senate Republicans have “the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election.”
The Republican also said that the Senate Judiciary Committee will report the nomination so there can be a vote on Trump’s nominee on the Senate floor before the election.
He also noted that Republicans will confirm Ginsburg’s replacement before November 3rd.
According to Lindsey Graham, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee “We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election. That’s what’s coming.”

“We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election,” Graham told Sean Hannity.
“We’re going to move forward in the committee. We’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election.”
“That’s the constitutional process,” Graham noted.
Graham Vows He And Republicans Won’t Be Intimidated By The Left
The senator continued, “After Kavanaugh, everything changed with me. They’re not going to intimidate me, Mitch McConnell, or anybody else.”
“The nominee is going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee, and we’ve got the votes to confirm the judge — the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election,” Graham insisted.
“And that’s what’s coming,” he vowed.
The night before Graham made his comments to Hannity, protesters gathered outside the senator’s Washington, DC residence to demand he not confirm a replacement for Ginsburg.
Some of the activists tried to enter Senator Graham's front yard and knock on the door
Police formed a line preventing most from doing so, and forced one protester who got through off the yard.

Expect The Left’s Shrill Reaction To Get Worse
Given the tone and even violent aggressiveness of today’s left, this was not surprising.
And as President Trump and Republicans continue to go through the process of what the Constitution demands when a Supreme Court seat becomes vacant, expect the left’s reaction to become increasingly worse.
We are already seeing it from Democrat leaders.
They have threatened to pack the courts.
They have threatened to impeach the president for merely doing his Constitutionally-prescribed job.
Left-wing liberals like CNN commentator Resa Azlan have threatened to burn down the country.
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.
