She does not support filling a Supreme Court vacancy before 2021. “When Republicans held off Merrick Garland it was because nine months prior to the election was too close, we needed to let people decide,” she said. “If we now say that months prior to the election is OK when nine months was not, that is a double standard and I don’t believe we should do it. So I would not support it.”
