Senator Cruz Will Filibuster

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly yesterday, February 13th, 2016.  May he rest in peace.

His death leaves an absence on the Supreme court bench and President Obama would like nothing more than have someone he appoints fill the position.

I do not think that President Obama will get his wish.

"SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: George, the Senate has not confirmed a nominee that was named in the final year, an election year, in 80 years. This is a lame duck president. And, by the way, the only reason Anthony Kennedy was nominated that late is that Democrats in the Senate had gone after and defeated two previous nominees, Robert Bork, which set a new standard for partisan attacks on a nominee, and Doug Ginsburg."

 "STEPHANOPOULOS: But does that mean -- does that mean that you're going to filibuster anyone -- anyone that President Obama nominates?

CRUZ: Absolutely."

Cruz: If The Democrats Want To Replace Scalia, "They Need To Win The 2016 Election"
