VP Harris Could Legally Vote Herself the New Supreme Court Justice: Expert
James Wallner, a senior fellow at the R Street Institute, told Fox News that she could vote for herself if all 50 Republican senators opposed her nomination.
”Under the Constitution, yes, the vice president casts the tie-breaking vote,” Wallner told Fox News Digital. ”Now whether or not that’s in good taste is something else and it could very well lead to further politicization of the Supreme Court. But as a matter of procedure, it seems to be pretty straightforward. If there’s a tied vote, the Vice President is authorized by the Constitution to cast that tiebreaker.”
