Ginsburg Vigil Draws Tears, Protests Against McConnell

Ginsburg’s death on Friday, just 46 days before Nov. 3, has led Republicans to scramble to justify nominating a justice to the bench during an election year, despite past opposition to doing so during Barack Obama’s presidency.

Democrats, meanwhile, have called to wait until after the election. Appointees from Democratic presidents already are the minority on the nine-person court.

Trump has said his pick for a nominee could come within days, and he has pledged to select «a woman, a very talented, very brilliant woman.»

Ginsburg, a liberal on the court and feminist icon, died on Friday at age 87.
