Governor Baker among leaders demanding delay in choosing replacement, mourning Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Massachusetts leaders from across the political spectrum mourned the death of iconic Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, with many — including popular Republican Governor Charlie Baker — urging that her dying wish be respected and a successor not be chosen until after the November presidential election.

Ginsburg, who died Friday at age 87 of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, served for decades as a champion of gender equality on the nation’s highest court. Her death leaves a crucial vacancy on the Supreme Court, and President Trump told Republicans Saturday they must move forward with picking her successor.

“We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices,” Trump said on Twitter. “We have this obligation, without delay!”

But many in Massachusetts political leadership criticized any effort to push the appointment of a Supreme Court justice before ballots are counted in the upcoming election.

2. unfortunately what reallly counts for millions of republicans is what the racist dumbfuck

on the radio says monday morning - the guy with lung cancer who told millions for years that smoking doesn't cause cancer and COVID is a hoax. even if trump has already pushed for immediate action it's this dumbfuck putin tool on 600 radio stations, at least half of which depend on black athletes, who the gop asskissing senators will have to worry about

the guy biden should reference in any debate - as in,
"well, that's what limbaugh says but"
