Obama nominated Merrick Garland on March 6 so that sets a baseline of about 8 months.
I don't think that's the right baseline. Normally confirmation processes run for a few months, but in a rush, I suspect the Republicans could get it done in a few weeks, so ... she's got to hold out until, I don't know, sometime around New Year's Day 2021.
