(AmericanProsperity.com) – With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, September 18, the pressure to fill the Supreme Court Justice vacancy rises. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) chimed in to the discussion on Tuesday, September 22, with a statement of his potential support.
Republicans currently have 53 members in the Senate and only 51 are needed to confirm a SCOTUS appointee. Romney was considered a potential swing vote, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may have enough votes to confirm a new justice appointed by President Donald Trump.

President Trump will announce his appointee for the SCOTUS vacancy on Saturday, September 26. The short list of potential picks includes:
- Judge Amy Coney Barrett
- Judge Barbara Lagoa
- Judge Allison Jones Rushing
- Jude Joan Larsen
Another Conservative justice on the high court would secure a 6-3 majority. With the election just over a month away, a last-minute SCOTUS confirmation could be a huge boost for the Trump campaign.
