To jam this nomination through the Senate is just an exercise in raw political power, and I dont believe the people of this nation will stand for it, he said. 
The Democratic candidate appealed to the handful of Republican senators who really will decide what happens calling on them to please follow your conscience.
Dont vote to confirm anyone nominated under the circumstances President Trump and Sen. McConnell have created, Biden advised. Dont go there. Hold your constitutional duty, your conscience. Let the people speak. Cool the flames that have been engulfing our country.
Biden concluded by saying the last thing the country needs ahead of the presidential election is a constitutional crisis that plunges us deeper into the abyss, deeper into the darkness.
If we go down this path, I predict it will cause irreversible damage, he said. The infection this president has unleashed on this democracy can be fatal. Enough. Enough. Enough. We must come together as a nation.
The Democratic presidential contenders comments come after President Trump said he expects to select a woman this week to replace Ginsburg on the Court.
