McConnell will stand firm on supreme court nominee , so he says

From Politico:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a group of staunch House conservatives there isn’t “a snowball’s chance in hell” that he will back down from his opposition to confirming a Supreme Court justice before a new president is elected.

McConnell’s comments came after Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, the chairman of the Freedom Caucus, urged him to stay the course and not back down from a fight with the White House and Senate Democrats.

“There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that’s gonna happen,” McConnell said, according to lawmakers in the meeting.

I don’t see any wiggle room in that. Got to have a Republican Senate in 2017, though.
