Collins broke ranks with the GOP in September when she declared she would oppose the nomination of a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice to fill the seat left behind by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Most Republicans have said they would rally behind the movement to place a new conservative justice on the bench as quickly as possible.

While Collins agreed the idea that House Judiciary Committee should begin to review the nominee's qualifications, she said in a statement that the confirmation of an appointee should wait until after the November election.

"In fairness to the American people, who will either be re-electing the president or selecting a new one, the decision on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court should be made by the President who is elected on November 3rd," Collins said.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to take a place on the U.S. Supreme Court. If Barrett is approved, she would be the third justice appointed to the nation's highest court by Trump. Barrett's seat would give conservatives a decided edge on the Supreme Court, pushing the balance of power to 6 conservative justices to 3 liberal justices.

  What Trump has done to the courts, explained No president in recent memory has done more to change the judiciary than Donald Trump.Trump hasn’t simply given lots of lifetime appointments to lots of lawyers. He’s filled the bench with some of the smartest, and some of the most ideologically reliable, men and women to be found in the conservative movement. Long after Trump leaves office, these judges will shape American law — pushing it further and further to the right even if the voters soundly reject Trumpism in 2020.
