McConnell says timing of Supreme Court vote depends on Senate panel

·1 min read

WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he will determine the timing of a Senate vote to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, after the Senate Judiciary Committee recommends a nominee for confirmation.

McConnell told a news conference that the next step will be for Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham to handle in committee the nominee that President Donald Trump is expected to announce on Saturday.

"When the nomination comes out of committee, I'll decide when and how to proceed," McConnell said. (Reporting by David Morgan; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
