Two Republican senators say they oppose Supreme Court vote before election

CBS News Monday, 21 September 2020
Washington is gearing up for a political battle over filling the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says whoever President Trump nominates would get a Senate vote. But so far, two Republican Senators say they do not support filling the seat before the November election. CBS News chief congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes joins CBSN's Lana Zak with more on that, and who President Trump is considering for the seat.
