Abstract

This past Friday Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, creating an open seat on the nation’s highest court six weeks before the presidential election. In this Q&A, LSE US Centre Director Professor Peter Trubowitz looks at how Joe Biden’s presidential campaign may try to counter Trump’s Supreme Court pick, and the potential risks and rewards for the Republicans if they fast-track a vote on the President’s nominee.
