McConnell says Biden must ‘move to center’ to receive a future Supreme Court nominee majority

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) warned President Joe Biden on Tuesday that he will need to “move to center” if he expects GOP support of any future Supreme Court nominee.

McConnell has already announced he will oppose current nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, urging other Republicans to join him.

“What I can say with pretty great certainty is the president who ran as a moderate and who has governed as Bernie Sanders would, would have to spend the last two years of his term being a moderate,” McConnell said regarding a possible GOP majority after the midterms.

The Senate currently sits at a 50-50 tie with Democrats at an advantage as Vice President Kamala Harris controls the vote in the case of a tied vote.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham also argued that his party would not have approved someone so radical if they held the majority in the Senate.

“If we get back the Senate and we’re in charge of this body and there is judicial openings, we will talk to our colleagues on the other side. But if we were in charge, she would not have been before this committee. You would have had somebody more moderate than this,” Graham said.

The new report comes as Jackson nears a vote that is set to confirm her as the first female black Supreme Court justice.
