Senator McConnell has already said that "President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate." According to the NY Times regarding McConnell's statement:
Mr. McConnell was notably unclear, however, about the timing, whether he would push for such a vote before the election or wait until a lame-duck session afterward. Several of his members face tough election contests and might balk at appearing to rush a nominee through in such highly political conditions.
My question: If the vote is postponed until after the elections and Trump loses, will Trump's list of Supreme Court nominees still be considered? I assume that Biden already has a list of his own?
On the other hand, if the current list is irrelevant after Trump loses, then why would the NY Times say that the timing was unclear?
