Rush calls for skipping SCOTUS nomination hearings, going straight to a floor vote

During a segment of his popular radio show, Conservative icon Rush Limbaugh urged Republicans to skip hearings for Trump’s yet to be announced Supreme Court nominee and instead go straight to a floor vote.

Rush said “I want the Judiciary Committee… that could be great if it were skipped. We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.”

Rush also argued “We don’t want to give Kamala Harris the opportunity to grandstand in that committee, as a vice-presidential running mate.”

Appearing on “Hannity” on Fox News Monday, Senator Lindsey Graham said “We’ve got the votes to confirm” Justice Ginsburg’s replacement “before the election. That’s what’s coming.”

It’s unclear whether Graham knows for certain Republicans have the votes or if he was projecting confidence.
