Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring because things weren’t bad enough

Trump praised Kennedy as a man of "tremendous vision" and said his search for a new justice would begin "immediately". McConnell would tell anyone who listened that the Senate had the right to advise and consent, and that was every bit as important as the president's right to nominate. After his passing, the Supreme Court had a 4 to 4 balance of conservative- and liberal-leaning justices.

Kennedy, who provided key votes for same-sex marriage, abortion access and affirmative action, had announced hours earlier Wednesday his plans to retire from the Supreme Court.

The retirement will take effect at the end of July.

November's midterm elections are expected to produce a bitter struggle for control of Congress in a deeply polarized country, especially if a court seat is still in play.

Leonard Leo is taking a leave from the society to advise President Donald Trump on the nomination process to replace Kennedy.

The 81-year-old said on Wednesday that he is stepping down after more than 30 years on the court. On those issues, he has often sided with the court's liberal justices.

"I think you see the kind of quality that we're looking at when we look at that list". Lindsey Graham of SC said in a statement.

But McConnell and other Capitol Hill Republicans were in no rush to fill a Supreme Court vacancy under the Obama administration. Joe Biden (in 1992) and Chuck Schumer (in 2007) that the Senate shouldn't confirm a nominee in the final year of a presidency.

And he's not the only one. Sen. "There should be no consideration of a Supreme Court nominee until the American people have a chance to weigh in".

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas said resistance to the nominee by Democrats, or others, would be futile. This is so because, in his timing, Kennedy has given Republicans a great election-year gift.

"Referring to his statement of calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, she said that "...this new window dressing can not hide an unassailable fact: "the words of the President and his advisers create the strong perception that the Proclamation is contaminated by impermissible discriminatory animus against Islam and its followers".
