Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which typically hosts hearings on Supreme Court nominees — said Thursday that it’s “going to be the new rule” that the Senate blocks any nominee that would fill a Supreme Court vacancy that opened within a year before a presidential election.

“We are setting a precedent today. That in the last year of a lame-duck eight-year term that you cannot fill a vacancy in the Supreme Court,” Graham said at a Judiciary Committee meeting Thursday. “Based on what we’re doing here today. That’s going to be the new rule.” close
