INDIANAPOLIS — Protesters Monday had a message for Mike Braun and Todd Young, Indiana's two Republican U.S. Senators.

At a rally outside the Indianapolis offices of the two lawmakers, the message was clear: the Senate should not vote on Ruth Bader Ginsburg's replacement until after the November election. Protesters say the precedent was set in March of 2016 when President Obama was barred from appointing a new justice before the election that sent Donald Trump to the White House.

"We have like 45 days left to the election, that is not enough time to vet a supreme court nominee, period," said Theresa Bruno. "We can't even get through a second stimulus package because of COVID-19. We definitely don't have time to vet a Supreme Court nominee."

WRTV has reached out to Braun and Young for comment, but have not heard back from either senator.
