Obama Vows to Appoint Scalia’s Replacement Despite GOP Demands


President Obama reflected on the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and pledged to appoint a new justice to fill his seat, despite the GOP’s call for him to refrain until the next president takes office.

He alluded to the GOP’s demands, stating:

“I plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities 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 fair hearing and a timely vote. These are responsibilities that I take seriously, as should everyone.”

The GOP has stated that they will block any SCOTUS nomination that President Obama makes.
