Two Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, have said recently that they would not vote for a Supreme Court nominee if a justice died or retired close to the presidential election.

Collins told a New York Times reporter earlier this month that she would not vote for a nominee in October. “I think that’s too close, I really do,” Collins said.
