The death of RBG adds a new dimension to the US election. Promptly, the Senators are drawing their lines. The GOP slim majority will become thinner as Collins and Murkowski see writing on the walls. Collins is already trailing in the polls. Murkowski publicly declared she would not vote for a GOP nominee for SCOTUS. Graham is in a close race in South Carolina. Another fight over SCOTUS could put the Ds in control of the Senate. RealClearPolitics shows the parties tied in sure and likely seats. RBG could shift that thinning margin. Women make up more than 50% of voters. Women in the suburbs may see this issue as vital to their interests. It remains to be seen whether Moscow Mitch can push a nominee through before the election or will the GOP run on a promise of doing so? When will 2020 end? Not for decades if the GOP succeed in appointing yet another justice.
