Allow me to describe for you an intriguing political scenario.
A progressive candidate with minimal name recognition outside his own state takes on a controversial but formidable conservative incumbent with a major national profile for a seat in the United States Senate.
In light of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s pending retirement from the Supreme Court, I think it wise that the Senate follow a maxim set down by Mitch McConnell only two years ago:
“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”
