Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said there is precedent for confirming a U.S. Supreme Court judge in a short period of time, providing her remarks Friday on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Jerome Hudson.
Blackburn joined Breitbart News Tonight just a few hours after the Supreme Court announced the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had served on the Court since 1993 and was one of its most well-known, liberal members.
Hudson highlighted Blackburn’s influential role on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which votes to bring Supreme Court nominees before the Senate floor, and noted Democrats are seeking to block such a vote from occurring.
Justice Ginsburg was confirmed in 42 days.
