I can’t weigh in on the legal issues here, but if VA ratifies the Equal Rights Amendment and the only thing standing between the ERA and full adoption is a vote in Congress to waive the deadline, and House Dems vote to waive it, it’d be a hell of a vote to throw to the Senate.

It’s a win-win. It’s a terrible β€œno” vote for Republicans and as you point out, might split their conference. And if it passes, huge. Hard to see a downside. Pending VA ratification, of course.

Fun fact, in his very first Senate race in 1984, McConnell actually ran on a platform endorsing the ERA.

Louisville Courier-Journal, Nov. 2, 1984: "McConnell said he is against abortion, gay rights and gun control, but supports the Equal Rights Amendment and prayer in public schools."

5 states: ID, KY, NE, SD, and TN. But there's a question as to whether a state can revoke their ratification. In the case of three amendments (14th, 15th, & 19th), the amendment succeeded on the basis of it being initially ratified, even though support was later withdrawn.

The Senate would vote it down, and Senator Susan Collins would be very troubled, and deeply concerned, while casting the deciding vote.

After all these years, it is weird to think it could become a reality.
