    According to exit polls, ratification of the ERA was one of the top three motivating factors that drove the vote in Virginia.

    There won't be a Senate election in Florida in 2020, but I suppose you're right. Flipping the Senate and ratifying the ERA won't be much of a motivating factor in other races. Amy McGrath probably won't even mention it in her race with Turtle. Women don't make up much of the electorate in the US.

    The Violence Against Women reauthorization, TANF extension and a few hundred other bills are already sitting dead on Mitch McConnell's desk. What exactly about the ERA is going to change how people already react in 2020?

It will likely then die in the Senate, but it will put the Turtle and several of his GOP friends in a very uncomfortable position. So one more reason for Democrats to flip the US Senate in 2020 is the ratification of the ERA.
    Could they appeal the whole timeline and rescinding stuff to SCOTUS? They probably would lose but since there's nothing explicit about it in the Constitution it's worth a shot.

    What happens to those bills if no action is taken? Do they expire? If the Ds take the Senate next year, would they still be sitting there for a vote?

    Everything expires at the end of each Congress.
