Joe Biden Can Confirm Even More Judges If Democrats Win Georgia's Senate Race

"Republicans will no longer be able to routinely delay votes on the presidentís court picks if Democrats hold a 51-49 majority.

.......

The Senate has been tied at 50-50, along party lines, for the entire time that Biden has been president. Thatís meant that Democrats and Republicans have had equal representation on the Judiciary Committee, where GOP members have been intentionally delaying the confirmation process for a number of Bidenís court picks.


All those GOP members have to do is unanimously vote no on a nominee, causing a tie within the committee, and it keeps that nominee stuck there. Whenever they do this, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has to file a so-called discharge petition to force that nominee out of the committee and onto the Senate floor for a confirmation vote."
