OK, the NYT is wrong??No he won't. The "new" senate doesn't take over until it convenes on the third of January. Up to and including close of business on the second of January, the "old" Senate controls things. It doesn't matter what date state law says the new senator takes office, state law can't overrule federal law.If Kelly wins he will be seated November 30th filling McCain's seat.“A Mark Kelly win in Ariz. Senate race could spoil McConnell's plans to replace Ginsburg”If he's victorious Nov. 3, the Democrat, former astronaut and husband of Gabby Giffords might take office in time for the vote.news.yahoo.com

The confirmation vote will take place in the Republican majority lame duck Senate, before the new session of Congress starts.
Such is the reprehensible right.
So Mitch would need to have the vote before 11/30.
