Letter: We need a new Supreme Court justice now

Imagine Donald Trump, a Republican, getting elected president and the Republicans retaining control of both the House and Senate. With the Republicans in the Senate saying there won’t be a vote on a Supreme Court nominee until the next president is elected, we could have a Republican put on the Supreme Court. That would give us a single party government just like Communist China. Both Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Sen. Dan Sullivan want to block a vote. I wonder if our founding fathers would have risked their lives had they know Congress would ignore the Constitution and play politics instead. We need a ninth justice now, not 10 months from now.

Thank you.
