Angus King agrees, too.


“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president,” Maine. Sen. Angus King said during a floor speech late Sunday night, quoting the 2016 comments of Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader, in opposition to Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland.

“He said that eight months before the election,” King said. “This confirmation, if it takes place tomorrow, will be eight days before the election. … About a third of the voters have already voted.”

King, a moderate independent who often votes with Democrats, said he had heard a “great deal of pearl-clutching” about potential court packing, but noted that the Constitution does not require a specific number of justices on the Supreme Court, which repeatedly changed during the 1800s.
