Shortly before her death, Ginsburg said, “My most ardent wish is that I should not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
In the November election, Republican incumbent US President Donald Trump will take on former Democrat Vice President Joe Biden.
Supreme Court justices are nominated by the President of the United States and then confirmed by the Senate.
Earlier this month, Trump unveiled a shortlist of potential Supreme Court candidates, including Republican Senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley.
If Trump chooses Ginsburg’s replacement, the balance of the court will be six Republican appointees to three Democrats, while if Biden chooses there will be four Democratic appointees to five Republicans, like when Ginsburg was alive.
Mad Men ‘s January Jones fame acknowledged the impact of Ginsburg’s death on the election when she posted a tribute to the late judge on Friday.
Jones shared Ginsburg’s high school yearbook photo, writing, “Rest in peace to this beautiful champion of the people. Please vote. #RBG. ‘
Andy Cohen posted the hashtag: “ #MerrickGarland, ” the name of the judge who nominated President Obama to the Supreme Court in March 2016.
Obama submitted Garland as nominee after the death of court conservative firefighter Antonin Scalia, sparking a huge feud.
The Republican Senate declined to hold confirmation hearings for him, saying the next president should elect Scalia’s because it belonged to Obama last year.
When Obama was replaced by Donald Trump, the new Republican President nominated Neil Gorsuch who confirmed the Senate.
