Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's message for the Republican-majority Senate in light of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death Friday is something Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said four years ago: "The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice."

Schumer tweeted that Ginsburg's seat should not be filled until after the election, repeating word for word what the Kentucky Republican had said in light of the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016 as the presidential campaign was underway.

McConnell confirmed Friday he has no intention of waiting for the election to confirm whomever Trump puts forward.
