Ruth Bader Ginsburg became a Supreme Court justice in 1993. She died on September 18 at age 87. She was a pioneer for gender equality, and championed voting rights, affirmative action, and other liberal causes in blistering dissents. Her death has plunged Washington into even more political chaos, as the presidential election is a little more than a month away. President Trump plans to announce his pick to replace Ginsburg this week. What might happen if a conservative is her replacement?
