Four years ago, it would have been hard to imagine Arizona Senator John McCain endorsing Mitt Romney, and urging voters “to make sure that we make [Romney] the next President.” After all, McCain seemed happiest throughout the 2008 campaign when he was gleefully attacking Romney for changing his positions on the issues and for being unfit to lead the country.

The Democratic National Committee is hoping to capitalize on that history. Today they released a video mash-up of McCain mocking Romney as a flip-flopper in the 2008 primaries. The video asks: “If McCain thinks Romney has two positions on every issue…which Mitt is he endorsing?”

Sen. Lisa Murkowski

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) declared on Sunday morning that she will oppose any Republican attempt to move ahead with a Supreme Court nomination to fill the seat left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

"For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election," said Murkowski in a statement released by her office. "Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed."

The Alaska Republican joined Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's announced determination to replace Ginsburg with a Trump appointee. If McConnell loses two more Republican votes, he will be unable to move a nomination before Election Day.
