“He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be answered.” Proverbs 21:13 (NASB).
My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.
As President Trump quickly moves ahead to nominate a replacement for the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Democrats had hoped to halt that process by convincing at least four Republicans that Trump's nominee should not even receive a vote before the election. Those hopes likely took a mortal blow Tuesday when Utah Sen. Mitt Romney announced that he is not opposed to confirming a nominee in an election year and that he would vote on Trump's replacement "based upon their qualifications."
If this holds, the Senate will confirm the President’s nominee before the November election.
