7:02 am
overnight. >> scalia, the longest serving member of the court. such a powerful impact. the fight over his replacement already so fierce. so much is at stake. team coverage this morning. we begin with new details about justice scalia's final hours at that texas ranch. jim avila has the latest. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, george. this luxury hunting ranch is now virtually empty. the jets have taken off carrying with them the memories of a trip interrupted by the death of its guest of honor. this morning, justice antonin scalia's body is heading to rest at the supreme court after being flown to dallas international airport overnight from texas. this as "good morning america" learns details about his last hours from the man who discovered his body behind the drawn curtains of this $500 a night room at a luxury hunting lodge in west texas. >> he was totally peaceful, a man who went to sleep and just didn't wake up. >> reporter: the judge who loved
7:03 am
to hunt was scheduled to shoot birds saturday with an exclusive group of mostly texan couples who flew in by private jets to hunt, dine and hike this 30,000 acre property adjacent to big bend national park. justice scalia was the only famous guest, a friend of a friend. he arrived friday about noon, toured the property, didn't join that day's hunt, but did have dinner with the group overlooking the scenic lake. excusing himself early citing fatigue. >> at 9:00 he said it's been a very long day. >> reporter: in the morning, he missed breakfast and lunch. the owner knocked loudly, when he didn't get any answer. he entered. >> was there any sign of foul play or anything like that. >> oh, no, no. nor the sheets weren't even disturbed. >> the county judge who pronounced him dead over the phone told abc news the scalia family objected to an autopsy.

after talking with sheriff deputies and u.s. marshals on the ground, she agreed one was not necessary. >> they assured me they did not see any signs of foul play. >> the texas judge says that she talked to scalia's doctor who told her he was in poor health. he visited the office twice last week. the judge says she'll write on his death certificate, natural causes, heart attack. justice scalia was the longest serving member of the current supreme court with three decades on the bench. his death has huge implications for big cases the court is hearing right now. terry moran has covered the supreme court for us. he is there now for us. good morning, terry. >> reporter: antonin scalia, rare justices who was the leader of a movement on the court and in the country. but some highlights, no question, the second amendment the case that guaranteed the individual right to bear arms.
7:05 am
he was part of bush versus gore and in dissent, he did as much really when he was winning. the real question, they're shorthanded. huge cases right before the court right now. on public sector employees and the mandatory fees they pay right now. can they get out of that? the conservatives had that one lined up. liberals will likely win that now. other cases that president obama's actions on immigration, so controversial likely to come before the court. that and so many others, an abortion case, his voice and his vote, if you're going to be conservative, are going to be very sorely missed. amy and george. >> understandable why that political battle is heating up. >> it's begun already. the fight to replace judge scalia, it's shaping up to be a monumental fight. both in washington and on the campaign trail. jon karl is at the white house with that side of the story. >> reporter: good morning, george, this is a battle that's likely to extend throughout this presidential campaign and into
7:06 am
the first months of the next presidency. the battle over replacing justice antonin scalia came fast and furious. less than an hour after the supreme court announced his death on saturday, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell declared the vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president. senator marco rubio told george, the senate shouldn't start the process no matter who president obama nominates. >> within the last few months of the president's term we shouldn't be appointing supreme court justices. now the president can nominate whoever he wants. the senate shouldn't move forward until after the election. >> reporter: president obama called scalia a brilliant legal mind, made clear he would move forward anyway. >> i plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities to nominate a successor in due time. >> reporter: they're vowing to run out the clock until obama leaves the white house. that has democrats up in arms. >> the kind of obstructionism
7:07 am
that mitch mcconnell's talking about. he doesn't know who the president is going to propose and he says no, we're not having hearings. >> reporter: supreme court vacancies during an election year are extremely rare. while it's still early, the short list of presidential obama nominees. is forming. it includes merrick garland, a chief judge of the dc circuit court of appeals, a moderate who's won praise from republicans. circuit court judge jane kelly has won praise from senator grassley. just so happens to be the republican chairman of the senate judiciary committee. and sri srinavasan confirmed as a circuit judge 97-0 just three years ago. he would be the first justice of asian descent. no word from the white house when the president would make this nomination. but senior white house officials point out in his two previous supreme court nominations he took about 30 days. i expect we'll see a similar timeline here. >> okay, jon, thanks very much. let's talk to senator lindsey graham.
7:08 am
he's a member of the judiciary committee. which would consider a nominee from the president. senator graham, thanks for joining us this morning. your leader mitch mcconnell said flatly, president obama should not have a chance to fill this vacancy, does that mean the choice won't get a hearing? >> i don't know how that plays out. there's two things going on at the same time. very rare that you get a nomination and a selection in an election year. i don't think that's happened very much. but the well has been poisoned by our democratic colleague since 2013, changed the rules to confirm appellate judges and those two things make it highly unlikely that anybody will be confirmed until the next election. >> you said you could get behind the idea of a consensus choice, what does that mean? >> somebody, i just threw out orrin hatch -- >> a republican senator, that's not going to happen. >> i don't know who he could pick to bring the whole body together. i voted for sotomayor and kagan.
7:09 am
because i thought they were qualified. here's the lindsey graham approach. when an election is over, the president wins, they have a chance to send qualified nominees of their philosophy to the senate and i will vote for them if they're qualified even if i would not have chose them. this president has abused power. the democratic colleagues that i worked with decided to change the rules in historic fashion to pack the court and that power will have a consequence with me. but two conservatives. if hillary clinton wins the white house in 2017 and she sends over a qualified person who's liberal, i'll intend to vote for them if they're qualified. so this election does have consequence. >> what's the odds of this vacancy is going to get filled? >> very little. >> zero? >> yeah, very small. >> you are also state of south carolina, a big primary coming up this weekend saturday. you're behind governor bush, jeb bush and his candidacy. you been leading the charge with him against donald trump. he still has a pretty big lead
7:10 am
in your state, can he be stopped in south carolina? >> he's become the michael moore candidate of the republican party. at the end of the day, i don't know what's going to happen here. jeb is definitely surging. donald trump will not win the nomination. if you want to get a replacement for justice scalia, nominate a conservative -- nominate someone can win. donald trump cannot get 270 electoral votes. what he said about george w. bush being a liar and the cause of 9/11 is michael moore stuff. i think that will bite him here. he's unfit to be president of the united states. if we nominate donald trump we're giving not only the supreme court nominations to the democrats but control of the government. >> you would still support him? >> i got to really re-evaluate after what he said about george w. bush.
7:11 am
the kooky people in the world. the mainstream democratic party opposition of george w. bush, didn't go where donald trump went. i'll have to think about what it means to have somebody running as the nominee of the republican party to accuse the past president of willfully lying about the facts and circumstances of iraq and being responsible for 9/11 that's something that comes from the kook part of america. we're just five days away from south carolina primary, which could be a critical moment for many of the campaigns and this morning the battle over the supreme court is shaping up to be a key issue and abc's tom llamas is here with that. good morning, tom. >> reporter: this week and this primary, so important for candidates like jeb bush and even senator marco rubio, who need a victory, a boost, anything positive as we get closer and closer to super tuesday and at this weekend's debate was any indication what this primary will look like, candidates better be ready to
7:12 am
fight. this morning the gop candidates agreeing on one thing. the senate should block any nominee president obama puts forth to replace supreme court justice antonin scalia. >> it's called delay, delay, >> the senate needs to stand strong. we're not going to give up the u.s. supreme court. >> reporter: some still recovering from what many are calling the nastiest debate yet. >> while donald trump was building a reality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe. i'm proud of what he did. he's had the gall -- >> the world trade center under your brother's reign. remember that. >> reporter: more than once, the crowd booing donald trump saturday night as he and jeb bush locked horns throughout the debate. >> they lied. they said there were weapons of mass destruction. there were none. and they knew there were none. there were no weapons of mass destruction.
7:13 am
>> reporter: in battle between senators cruz and rubio, started on immigration and ended in a different language. >> marco went on univision in spanish and said he would not rescind president obama's illegal amnesty. on his first day in office. >> first of all, i don't know how he knows what i said on univision because he doesn't speak spanish. and the other point i would make -- >> reporter: cruz later tangling with trump. in what trumped into a verbal cage match. >> he supports federal taxpayers funding for planned parenthood. >> you're the single biggest liar. you're probably worst than jeb bush. you're the single biggest liar. >> reporter: on that point, donald trump up early, tweeting, quote, funny that jeb didn't want help from his family in his failed campaign and didn't even want to use his last name. then mommy, now brother.
7:14 am
a clear shot at the president's appearance with jeb later today. amy. >> all right, tom, thank you for that. to reaction from the democratic candidates. hillary clinton and bernie sanders voicing outrage at the republicans and backing president obama all the way. abc's cecilia vega has the latest from miami, florida. good morning to you. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. for hillary clinton and bernie sanders this became a fight against republicans in congress and here on the campaign trail. bernie sanders said even though he disagreed with antonin scalia on every issue, it clears the president makes a nomination, the senate confirms it. he wants to see this process get under way as soon as possible. and hillary clinton. take a listen. >> it is outrageous that republicans in the senate and on the campaign trail have already pledged to block any replacement that president obama nominates. >> reporter: and she says these republicans vowing to block this nomination are dishonoring the constitution, amy.
7:15 am
>> cecilia, thanks so much. now to ryan smith with the other headlines starting with a scare on a flight to new york. good morning, guys. virgin atlantic flight to new york had to return to london after a laser beam hit one of the pilots in the eye. police are trying to determine where it came from. surge of laser attacks recently. a pilot's eyesight was damaged when a military strength laser targeted a plane at heathrow. >> doctors without borders says a makeshift hospital has been destroyed and russian air strikes leaving dozens of people killed or wounded. turkey is denying reports its ground troops have entered syria. u.s. has called on turkey to stop shelling kurdish fighters. and eliot spitzer is denying allegations that he assaulted a woman. sources say 25-year-old woman claims that spitzer choked her inside the plaza hotel. they apparently had a romantic relationship before she tried to break it off.

8:14 am
forecasting what someone wants to do. and in this case, he was suicidal. he saw suicide as a way to get out of his hopelessness. homicide is a way to get revenge towards people that you blame for your life. and he was considering both. they're both along the same dimensional scale. it's not that much of a transition for him. >> after the fact, looking at those journals there were so many warnings signs, journals that we just heard from dylan's mother, she did not read because she wanted to respect her son's privacy. what is your recommendation to parents who may have concerns? is it okay as we heard her saying now she would ran sack his room with love? >> the family has to understand what their culture is. we call that in the fbi who rules the roost, who's in charge of that family? despite who pays the mortgage, families want to be aware of not just the privacy but does it slide into secrecy, and is it supported by behavioral changes? not talking to the family, becoming very distant.

you can do and achieve anything you put your mind to. #beautybeyondsize. >> three different types of women representing every woman out there. >> reporter: for "good morning america," rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. >> they are indeed rocking it. joining me now is supermodel emme, who broke the ground. as a plus-size model and now an advocate for positive body image. i would say we have it here in a big way. >> it's so exciting. it really is a moment in history. >> we have seen plus-size models in the pages, but to put ashley on the cover, what does that say to little girls, to everybody? >> it's a very, very big stake in the ground saying, this is point in history that we're going to roll forward in a more positive, more inclusive way of how we see women. images of beauty. i think it's going on reverberate across the industry whether it's fashion, toys, magazines.
8:19 am
it's really wonderful. it's not a trend. >> please tell me it's not a trend. i mean, we're seeing -- also, "playboy" is perceiving women in a very different way. "sports illustrated" has done it. we're talking about it in a huge way. ashley, i don't think she gets a day off, she's working so much. >> yes, yes. there's a whole line of beautiful young ladies right behind ashley not going to make this a trend. they're all going to be a part of this beautiful momentum rolling forward for women and girls and quite frankly the men that love them. >> yes. >> men love all different kinds of women. >> beauty comes in all kind of packages. >> yes, it's great. it's a wonderful time in history. >> i have known you for a long time. you were one of the first speaking out about this. do you see more barriers that need to be broken? what would you like to see happen next? >> i'd like to see the toy industry continue to roll forward like mattel has done with its new fashionista line. curvy dolls within their barbie
8:20 am
line. which is awesome. i would like to see that cross all different -- >> it starts there, it starts very young where we imprint our kids with what -- >> yes, i think it starts very young, and i think it starts within the families, the mothers feeling better about themselves. and i think that the conversations around the kitchen tables are really, really important for girls to not hear that only one ideal of beauty is the one that's accepted. so, going forward, it would be nice to see a little bit more on the age, having models in different age brackets. to break that barrier down. right now, we're happy with having the diversity of body shapes and beauty out there. it's really quite lovely. >> we want to say congratulations to ashley, ronda and all of the girls. >> congratulations, you guys, you did a great job. >> and thank you for getting up early for us today. >> my pleasure, lara. >> now outside to rob. >> lara, what a great crowd out here on this presidents' day.
