CNN is refusing to air an ad pushing for a swift confirmation of the next Supreme Court justice until Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday, is formally buried.

The network alerted the 45Committee on Friday that it would not air the ad, which features video of Ginsburg stating that presidents are elected to serve a full four-year term, until after Ginsburg’s burial next week, according to a source familiar with the negotiation. 

Ginsburg pressed the Republican-led Senate to take up President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, even in an election year, and the ad suggests, despite reports that her dying wish was that she not be replaced until "a new president is installed," that Ginsburg understood that the Constitution dictated the opposite.
