Republican U.S. Senate candidate Hirsh Singh say he supports Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s interpretation of the “Biden Rule” to fill U.S. Supreme Court vacancies in an election year.
McConnell says he views that Biden Rule as applying to top court vacancies in an election year when the White House and the U.S. Senate are controlled by different parties.
“Although the Biden Rule has been clear, it’s important that conservatives recommit themselves to it apart from the spectacle of an actual vacancy,” Singh said. “Whomever is nominated will need the full support of our Party to survive the slings and arrows of Antifa and the radical left.”
Singh is one of three Republicans in the race to challenge Cory Booker in next year’s race for New Jersey’s U.S. Senate seat.
“Americans of all political persuasions agree that unelected judges should not use their power to create law but should faithfully interpret laws according to the intent of the Framers and of Congress,” Singh said. “The confirmation of nearly 150 solid judges has been the greatest accomplishment of the last two years for which the President and Senator McConnell deserve both our gratitude and reelection to their respective offices.”
