Republican Senators Must Fulfill Their Constitutional Duty

It is simply a lie that there have never been any election-year appointments to the Supreme Court. In the past, six Supreme Court Justices have filled a vacancy during election years, including currently presiding Justice Anthony Kennedy, who was nominated by Reagan and confirmed by a Democratic-led Senate.
