first at 11 -- the united states supreme court flag flies half staff in honor of chief justice antonin scalia. officials says he died of natural causes while on a hunting trip in south texas. he was 79 years old. outside the u-s supreme court ... a flag at half-staff, flowers and candles marking the passing of justice antonin scalia. "tonight, we honor his extraordinary service to our nation, and remember one of the towering legal figures of our time." justice scalia was 79 - the longest- serving justice on the current court - but still his death at a texas ranch came without warning. and it came in the middle of landmark court calendar - with nothing less than the boundaries of presidential power under review. his passing sets the stage for a political battle royale over his successor - and the supreme court's balance of power. on a polarized bench ... he was as well known
fiery dissents - the cornerstone of a conservative wing that influenced the law of the land on issues ranging from affirmative action and abortion . to gun ownership and free speech - not to mention obamacare. but he was a firm proponent of the letter of the law - not the intent of the founding fathers. "i, antonin scalia do solemnly swear... " the nation's first italian-american justice was appointed in 1986 by president ronald reagan ... he was known as an unapologetic - but fair conservative. "i am not going onto the court with a list of things i want to do. my only agenda is to be a good judge." and he was confirmed unanimously - 98-to- zero by the senate - an unlikely scenario for his successor. president obama said he will choose a nominee ... but leaders of the republican controlled senate have already made it clear they want to hold off on considering anyone until the next president is seated. south carolina attorney general alan wilson expressed his condolences on
passing saying in part, "justice scalia was a hero and patriot. hopefully, those who follow in his footsteps share his reverence for the constitution, the rule of law, and our republic." and the sudden news of justice scalia's death is causing a stir in tonight's republican debate in greenville. we go live to will whitson with a look at how this supreme court vacancy is playing a role on the campaign trail. it all comes down to appointments- and whether or not the republican controlled senate would actually confirm any appointee from president obama. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says the senate should wait on a new president to make an appointment. senator lindsey graham republicans should wait until the next president to go through the confirmation process- and there is a strong possibility that one of the six men on the debate stage tonight could be that president. but the question of which of
candidate- is not one south carolina lawmakers can agree on. south carolina "if anybody stood out, it would be ted cruz. he's actually argued cases before the supreme court. from a standpoint of legal background, i suspect he's got the most legs to stand on in having a perspective." south carolina "everybody running with the exception of donald trump i am confident can select a supreme court justice that i could vote for. here's the problem: i don't think donald trump or ted cruz can win an election. i don't think ted cruz has a snowball's chance in hell of getting 270 justice scalia's death set the pace for tonight's debate- but it wasn't the only topic. charles molineaux has a look at tonight's events.
