Republicans have the votes to confirm to the person that President Donald Trump nominates for Supreme Court justice, the senator said he will lead the nomination in the upper house.

“The nominee will be supported by all Republicans in the Judiciary Commission”

Republican Senator Mitt Romney said he won’t oppose the vote. This ensures Trump has the necessary backing for his nominee.

“If the nominee reaches the Senate plenary, I will try to vote based on his qualifications,” the Utah congressman said.

Trump is expected to announce by the weekend the person who will replace late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which triggered a monumental battle in the Senate, where Democrats argue that the appointment is too close to the November election.

The president met with Conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett at the White House on Monday and told reporters that he would interview other candidates and that he could meet with Judge Barbara Lagoa when he travels to Florida later this week. Conversations at the White House and with Republican majority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, are increasingly focused on Barrett and Lagoa, according to one person aware of the issue but who called for anonymity for not being allowed to comment on it.

Republican Senator Martha McSally, who is running for a special election in Arizona, said Tuesday in “Fox & Friends” that re-election is key not only to keeping the Republican Party in control of the Senate, but also to ensure Trump’s candidate for a judge is confirmed.

If his Democratic opponent Mark Kelly wins, he would take office on November 30. This would reduce the majority of the Republican Party in the Senate. Kelly has maintained a steady lead in polls over McSally, who was appointed to John McCain’s position when he died in 2018.

Meanwhile, 10 former federal judgements, including former FBI Director William Webster, asked Senate leaders to refrain from deciding on the candidate until after The Day of Oath.

The ex-magists, appointed by Democratic and Republican presidents, said this process has been “dangerously politicized” and warned that “this harmful mix” could “flatly diminish and change the public’s faith in this vital institution.”

The legitimacy of the Supreme Court “is not something that can be recovered if lost,” the judges wrote in a letter to the leaders of both parties in the Senate. “It is up to you to demonstrate the same restraint that is required of our judiciary.”

In addition to Webster, signing judges include H. Lee Sarokin of New Jersey, Thomas Vanaskie of Pensilvani and Ann Claire Williams of Illinois.
