No vote on court pick in 'lame duck' session: Senate leader

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (C) will not hold any hearings in hopes that a member of the Republican party will win the presidential electionSenate Leader Mitch McConnell vowed Sunday not to vote on Barack Obama’s pick for the Supreme Court while Congress and the US president are in a “lame-duck” session following November elections. Senate Republicans have been adamant that they will not hold a hearing and a vote on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland, insisting that the decision should be taken by Obama’s successor, who will not take office until January. Some lawmakers have suggested however that a vote on a Supreme Court justice could be held after the November vote, during the two-month White House and congressional interregnum.
