It’s almost as though 2016 is becoming a national civics lesson.
Does the President have the Constitutional obligation to fill Supreme Court vacancies? He would seem to.
Should the Senate block anyone he nominates (even if that nominee was previously confirmed 97-0 to the Court of Appeals)? The Senate Majority Leader and Republicans running for president believe it should.
And this article from the Palm Beach Post offers a look at the impact of legislative redistricting on things like whether your child can carry a sidearm into class. (The Republicans were for that, but now, with redistricting, they’re not so sure.)
Quote of the Day
