I figured it was only a matter of time with her. She seemed to get worse and worse health wise. I thought she might hold on until January. I don't know how long the seat can remain vacant.

They'll schedule hearings before the ink is dry on her death cert.
Remember Garland? They argued that a seat shouldn't be decided in an election year. $10 says they'll argue the opposite next week.

The seat cannot remain open because we await an election. Let's just hope that the senate shows some judgment. We cannot count on Trump for that.

It wouldn't shock me of there is already a nomination ready. They may be "respectful" and wait until tomorrow.

The dems need to threaten here. "If you push a nominee through and we win the Senate, the legislative filibuster is gone. DC and Puerto Rico are states, guaranteeing 4 new Dem senators, and we will pack the hell out of the court."

The threat needs teeth.
I don't think that PR residents want to be a state.
