GOP sends Biden warning shot on future Supreme Court vacancies

Senate Republicans are refusing to say if they would fill a future potential Supreme Court vacancy during President Biden’s remaining tenure in a warning shot to the White House as the GOP aims to take back control of Congress after the midterms.


Comments from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) about how a GOP-controlled Senate would approach Biden judicial nominees is intensifying questions about whether Republicans would refuse a high court pick from the Democratic president should the GOP control the chamber in 2023.


That notion would mark a major escalation of the long-running, and increasingly antagonistic, judicial wars that have rocked the Senate.
