Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said there will be an orderly transition of power.

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaks at a press conference at the US Capitol on September 22, 2020 in Washington, DC, as McConnell said in a statement that the Senate would take up President Donald Trumps nominee for the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. – There is “overwhelming precedent behind the fact that this Senate will vote on this nomination this year,” said Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, dismissing comparisons to when GOP members refused in 2016 to vote on a replacement nominated by President Barack Obama for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
