LI community gathers to honor life, legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

They appear to be at the top of the USA leader's list of choices to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the liberal icon who served on the court for 27 years before her death Friday, a month and a half before the November 3 reelection contest between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.

Many Utahns are seeking leadership in the presidential election and don't know if they should support Biden.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, has been consistent, saying she will not vote on a Supreme Court nominee before the presidential elections. "We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions", he wrote, adding that Republicans had an "obligation" to fill the vacant seat "without delay".

The second female justice to be appointed to the United States Supreme Court died Friday after succumbing to the multiple cancers she fought for many years, and March Gallagher, the Ulster County comptroller and a lawyer organized Sunday's memorial to honor the feminist and civil rights icon. "Having made this their standard", he said, "they can not just four years later, change course when it doesn't serve their ends".

Mr Trump has vowed to swear in Ginsburg's successor "without delay".

Mr Biden said that if he won the presidential election, Mr Trump's nominee should be withdrawn.

"We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people". Once again, we will keep our promise.

"Leader McConnell has said that he will hold a vote on any nominee President Trump sends to the Senate, and I intend to fulfill my role as a U.S. Senator and judge that nominee based on his or her merits", Portman's statement said.

If Trump is able to install his nominee in that seat, both sides agree there's a better chance than ever that Roe v. Wade - the 1973 decision established a nationwide right to abortion - could be overturned or gutted. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Elizabeth Warren of MA, and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

Earlier, Mr Trump praised two female judges who serve on federal courts of appeals as possible choices.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, refused Sunday to rule out another impeachment attempt, which could tie up the Senate's schedule in the months remaining in this Congress.

"We have our options", she said.

The confirmation battle is likely to become a major campaign issue.

But the Post reported this week that "Republican strategists. are seeing evidence that. voters turned off by President Trump's handling of the coronavirus are starting to come home". No Supreme Court vacancies filled in an election year.

"She's an extraordinary person", Trump has said. Rick Scott will not be among them: "It would be irresponsible to allow an extended vacancy on the Supreme Court", Scott said in a statement after Ginsburg's death was announced.

Cruz praised McConnell and Sen. Mitt Romney, Utah Republican, shot down a Twitter report saying the Utah Republican had privately committed to opposing a nominee until after the election.

President Donald Trump wraps up his speech at a campaign rally at Fayetteville Regional Airport, Saturday, September 19, 2020, in Fayetteville, North Carolina. John McCain and isn't entitled to the full Constitutional term through January.

That could constrain Republicans' ability to operate in a lame-duck session. Likewise, in both 2016 and 2018, the American people have re-elected a Republican Senate majority to help President Trump fulfill that commitment.

Mr Biden urged a handful of wavering Republican senators to "follow your conscience".

Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday repeatedly asked Cotton whether any hypocrisy was at play in Republicans' push to replace Ginsburg just 44 days before Election Day, considering the GOP blocked former President Barack Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, nine months before the 2016 election. "These are all issues that the Supreme Court decides", Rocca said.

In a 2013 Texas Law Review article, Barrett listed fewer than 10 cases she said are widely considered "super-precedents", ones that no justice would dare reverse even if they believed they were wrongly decided.
