  • Breaking: Obama Promises To Submit Nomination To Replace Scalia

    Settling Debate, Obama 'In Due Time' Will Nominate A Supreme Court Replacement For Antonin Scalia 

    President Barack Obama just announced that he will indeed pick a nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away earlier today.

    As soon as news broke that the Senior Associate Justice had died, conservatives and GOP presidential candidates weighed in, insisting the president's replacement nominate Scalia's replacement – even though eleven months remain in Obama's term.

    "Obviously, today is a time to remember Justice Scalia’s legacy," the President noted, after honoring the late Justice.

    "I plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibility to nominate a successor in due time. There will be plenty of time for me to do so and for the Senate to fulfill its responsibility to give that person a full hearing and timely vote."

    Earlier tonight, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders released statements on Scalia's passing, with Clinton warning Republicans to not "abdicate" responsibility by blocking Obama's nominee.

      US House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia: ‘Whether or not you agreed with him, Justice Antonin Scalia served our nation with deep patriotism and distinction on the Supreme Court for nearly 30 years. He has been one of the strongest voices in the great American debate around our Constitution. He leaves behind a formidable record of jurisprudence, and a fierce (ME completely erron) articulation of his understanding of the Constitution.’ – NBC News via @breaking
