where flags are flying at half staff, as they are in the restst the country. our team coverage begins with jim avila in shafter, texas. hi, jim. >> reporter: good morning, paula paula. justice scalia had at least two passions in life. he loved the law and he loved to hunt. this weekend, he came out to west texas and the open spaces at a ranch resort owned by a texas billionaire to shoot some quail. he never made it out on the range. this morning, the body of supreme court justice antonin scalia arriving in el paso. officials telling abc news the 79-year-old lel icon died saturday in his eep from apparent natural causes. >> antonin "nino" scalia was a larger than life presence on the bench. a brilliant legal mind. with an energetic style. incisive wit. and colorful opinions. >> reporter: he was on a hunting krip at cibolo creek ranch in
shoot skeet. law enforcement sources saying he left dinner early and went to his room, feeling ill. when he didn't arrive to breakfast saturday morning, a person associated with the ranch went to check on him. he was found in his room, unresponsive. the catholic diocese of el paso administering his last rites at the ranch. a hearse then carrying his body towards el p paso. condolences pouring in from former presidents, current candidates, and government officials. house speaker paul ryan saying i, leard so much from this man. i knew him. i respected him. i looked up to him. we all did. at this point, no autopsy has been performed. in fact, a local justice of the peace pronounced the justice dead over the phone and then %-pcame out to the ranch to say there was no foul play involved and turned the body over to federal marshals. the fbi is also investigating. george? >> okay, jim. thk you. justice scalia's opinions are legendary.
sarcastic. he was a hero to conservatives. inspired a generation of legal thought. abc's terry moran has covered his tenure for so long. he joins us from mexico city. good morning, terry. >> reporter: gd morning, george. the supreme court had never seen anything like antonin scalia. he was the court's first italian-american. he was a high-voltage intellectual. who developed this great theory about the constitution a and the law and the proper le of judges in our system. through the force of his intellt. his flair as a writer and his appetite for aument, he made those ideas count in the country. and in the court. and he did it all laughing. he was a happy warrior. i've been thinking, it's just impossible to imagine that great courtroom without him in it. >> i, antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> i antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> reporter: justice antonin
a towering icon of conservative juris prudence. a man who loved his life in the law. >> i like figuring out the right answer to legal questions, believe it or not. >> reporter: nino scalia, as he was known to friends, served three decades on the supreme court. and in those year, he became a pivotal fifigure. he was a justice who did more than hand down rulings. he wanted to change the law itself and the court. through his spirit and forceful advocacy of what he called textualism. his strict interpretation of the constitution. he was unafraid to take a stand and seemingly incapable of backing down. famously lashing out at critics of his finding in the 2000 bush versus gore election dispute. >> i and my court owe no apology whatever for bush versus gore. we did the right thing so -- so there. get over it, it's so old by now. >> reporter: it was that brashness which cemented the court's first italian american
became famous for their caustic, take no prisoners styl he called the majority's reasoning in a 2013 defense of marriage act case legalistic argle-bargle. and slammed the court's decision on the affordable care act as jiggery-pokery. >> howan the government -- that is s gobbledyok. >> reporter: in cases big and small, his wit lashed out in legal arguments. he loved to get a laugh. >> okay, you can't refuse your money or your life. but your life or your wife's? i could refuse that one. >> reporter: but his quick tongue landed him in trouble at times. in 2015, scalia's comments about affirmative action drew protests. >> you know, when you take more, the number of blacks really competent blacks admitted to lesser schools, turns out to be less. reporter: but his friends and his colleagues say behind the combative mind and fiery words was a warm man and a close friend. forging an unlikely bond with liberal justice ruth bader
fellow new yorkers candid about their friendip, despite fiercely opposing political views. >> we agree on a whole lot of stuff. we do. ruth is really bad only on the knee-jerk stuff. [ laughter ] she is -- >> reporter: antonin scalia grew up in queens, new york. attendg xavier high school in manhattan before georgetown and harvard law school, where he met his wife maureen. >> maureen is an extraordinary woman. without whom i wouldn't be here. >> reporter: his wife and his family, they built together, as much a part of his life and legacy as the court and country he served. that seat on the supreme court, something he always cherished. many times dodging questions about stepping down, saying there was only one thing that could make him walk away. >> i will certainly retire at the time where i perceive that i am not as good as i used to be. that i've -- i've lost a step. >> reporter: for many, he never
lo him or loathe him, and americans did both, he was the kind of man to inspire those feelings. scalia must be counted as one of the most important supreme court justices in americanan hisistory >> a a terry, when you go back through his opinions, where is the most sweeping victory? and the most searing defeat? >> reporter: you know, probably his biggest victory was on the send amendment. he campaigned for years. wrote the opinion that held that the second amendment is the individual right. the right to bear arms. that was in keeping wi his notion that the federal government's power should be limited. some things are left to states, localities, and citizens. his biggest defeat, without question, abortion. he desperately wanted to overturn roe versus wade. he was never able to. >> okay, terry moran, thanks very much. the battle now to who comes next.
president obama says he'll make a successor. the senate says they won't let it happen. the battle lines drawn immediately. >> reporter: even before immediately, if that's possible, george. because ted cruz put out a statement that said the next president should be the one that replaces scalia before the supreme court officially confirmemed thatcalia was dead. mitch mcconnell put out a statement saying much the same thing, less than an hour after the court made the statement. these battle lines were drawn immediately. and in the debate last night, with the republican presidential candidates, all six of them agreed, saying that there is no way that barack ama should be allowed to name the replacement for justice scalia. president obama has made it perfectly clear he intends to move forwarard. the top of the list is sri srinivasan.
like quite a bit. he's a fmer clerk to justice sandra day o'connor. in his current post on the d.c.c. court of appes, he was con foirirmed97-0. not a single republican vote against him. george? >> this debate has just begun. >> it has. let's bring in abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams. good morning. >> good morning. >> a lot of names being floated as potential nominees by the president. these are people that have been confirmed by the united states senate. your argument is that this is different. >> there's a short list. a lot of them are court of appeals judges. who have gone through this process. they've ne to the senate. they've been confirmed. some people willll say, wa a second. this person or that person was confirmed with relatively little opposition. the rules are different. everything has changed now. two reasons. number one, the presidential campaign. number two you're talking about
justice scalia's memory for conservatives is so important that this time, anything that happened in the past is not particularly relevant to what is going to happen now. point being, it's going to be nearly impossible for president obama to get through the senate almost anyone who has been on his short list. >> how does the court function with only eight justices? can they actually move forward on a lot of the cases in front of them, including cases on the union and abortion? >> yeah, and there are 4 to 4 decisions. the court often divided 5-4. some of the opinions, you'll now see 4-4. what does that mean practically? the lower court opinion gets effectively confirmed. so wtever the lower court decided previously stands. but, the supreme court then is not setting any precedent.
opinion in the future to say, a-ha, but the supreme court previously ruled x, y, or z. it remains effectively a local decision confirmed withohout a definitive opinion from the supreme court. the possibility of creating quite a mess for the court system. >> is there a precedent for the court having to muddle through down one justice? >> yeah. justices do recuse themselves in certain cases. they say, for example, relatively new to the court. i was involved in that case as a solicitor general or some other way. so i can't be involved. the supreme court does sometimes have 4 to 4 rulings. it's rare.e. the idea that you're talking a year, 18 months, of 4-4 decisions by a divided court is completely unprecedented. >> thank you, dan. >> he served for 30 years on the supreme court. some are calling him the most influential justice in recent memory. so for more on his legal legacy, we want to bring in veteran
roberts, who join us us in pawley's island, south carolina. thank you for joining us this morning.g. >> hi, paula. good to be with you. >> first and foremost, how do you think justice scalia would want to be remembered? he had a legacy of being a constitutional purist. >> i think that is exactly how he would like to be remembered. as someone who cared desperately about the constitution and followed it to the letter by his lights. and did it with great intellect and some humor and sometimes, scathingly. and, in ways that really could take down the lawyers in the case or his colleagues on the court. remarkably, given all that, he was incredibly well liked. all right, cokie. thank you. i know you were up late for the debate last night. thank you for joining us early
>> paula and cokie, thank you both. speaking of the debate, that scalia news played a prominent role in the debate overnight. this debate quickly got nay. >> right after the moment of silencnce for juice scalalia. incredibly feisty. i don't t think i ve heard the word liar used so much in a single debate. let's go to tom llamas for more. >> reporter: that came from donald trump. on the defense all night. some of his biggest battles yet exploding on the debate stage. it shows you how many of the gop candidates want to put an end to the ump campaign. that wild gop debate started peaceful and respectful. the passing of antonin scalia fresh on the minds of the six remaining candidates. all agreeing that president obama shouldn't be the one to fill scalia's spot on the court. >> he would ram down our throat a liberal justice. >> we're not going to give up the u.s. supreme court for a generation by allowing barack obama to make one more liberal appointee. >> reporter: then the real fight started. >> jeb is so wrong. jeb is absolutely so -- [ crowbooing ]
loudly by the crowd during an openish -- epic clash with jeb bush about the bush family legacy. >> while donald trump was building aeality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe. and i'm proud of what he did. and he's had the gall to go after -- >> the world trade center came down -- >> reporter: and in a rare move, marco rubio coming to jeb's defense. >> the world trade center came down because bill clinton didn't kill osama bin laden when he had the chance to kill him. >> reporter: trump tangling with ted cruz, accusing him of running rorobocalls lling voters the front-runner wouldn't be on the ballot in south carolina. >> that's a matter of principle. >> you're the single biggest liar. you're probably worse than jeb bush. you are the single biggest liar. this guy lied. let me tell you. he lied about ben carson when he took votes away from ben carson in iowa. and he juscontinues.
refusing to join in on the exchanges. >> is that really what you want? what we just saw? i don't think so. >> reporter: and john kasich predicting who will ultimately gain from these brutal attacks. >> i think we're fixing to lose the election to hillary clinton if we don't stop this. >> reporter: now south carolina's republican primary is next saturday. this next week may be the most important for jeb bush. he's looking to revive his campaign. he'll get help from president george w. bush tomorrow on the trail. he'll likely face opposition from trump. who all week, not only does not ferkt, he does not forgive. a telling moment yesterday, george. jeb bush and donald trump didn't shake nds yesterday. >> they wept -- went at it so fiercely last night. last night, donald trump really for the first time in a debate, getting it from jeb bush and all sides. >> senator ted cruz, marco rubio. he was man on an island last night. a lot of conservative writers think last night republicans were trying to take trump out. >> thank you, tom llamas. >> he was getting it from the
the gloves came off and for more on the debate, weant to bring in abc news analyst matt dowd for his take. matt, first of all, as we just said, things got extremely ugly. there was a whole lot of name-calling. are the attacks helping the candidates? or are they doing irreparable damage to the gop brand? >> demolition derby is entertaining to watch. but after the derby is over, every car is damaged. i think republicans are fast approaching a time of how personal and how visceral and how much name-calling there is that this is not going to do anybody any go in the course of this. they all may survive. but over time, it's not going to be a benefit going into a general election. >> and matt, south carolina has the history of picking the nominee. last time was the exception. trump taking a chance last night by going after the bush family in south carolina. which is, you know, that family is loved in that state. >> well, as you know, george w.
badly in new hampshire in 2000. that was basically his comeback. it put him back on the path to win the general election. they're well-loved there. what would be interesting to me. donald trump attacked george w. bush last night. he attacked lindsey graham, a u.s. senator from south caroli. he got booed by the audience. if donald trump wiwins south carolina after all that, i think it's very difficult to stop m. if he's able to win south carolilina in thmidst of all that. >> right. but this is a guy who has shown over and over again that the normal rules of politics don't apply to him. that said, is there anybody you think came out well last night? jeb bush? marco rubio? kasich? >> well, i think, to me, i had two sort of folks that i thought were winners in the course of it. i think john kasich did. he sort of tried to stay out of the fight. trd to stay above it all. and i think he's gotten a lift from his second place finish in new hampshire. i thought he did well. i thought marco rubio, after his last awful debate performance,
christie, i thought he came bacack and did well. i thought jeb did fine. if i were picking two people i thought won, it would be john kasich and marco rubio. >> thank you, matt. we want to remind you george has a big show this morning on "this week ts" with guests marco rubio and john kasich. and on the democratic side texas big winner in the new hampshe primary, bernie sanders. great to have you in studio. a huge story. >> everybody wanted to come on overnight. donald trump is going to join us. ted cruz is going to join us. this issue is so huge. all the candidates wanant to wei in. >> it's an interesting time. george, thank you. go get ready for the show. have a great one. thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> sure. we want to turn to the dangerous cold in much of america. and indra petersons is on the story from a frigid central park. good morning to you. >> good morning, you know, since i cover weather a lot, i like to think i'm tougher than you guys. but when it's this cold, it's game over.

stay indoors today. by tomorrow, things should quickly recover. paula? dan? >> all right, indra. stay warm. coming up on "gma," bus on fire. the middle schoolers sent rushing for the exits. when they saw these ames. wh happened next? >> a scary situation. on a happier note,he nba's all-star game tips off tonight. we'll hear from steph curry abouwhether he thinks he's the st player in the game. guess what his answer was? >> i'm going to guess he didn't stay neutral on that one. if you want something to warm your heart this cold valentine's day -- we have the best rom com rentals for you and your sweetheart. >> you had me from hello. >> oh, thank you. soup and sandwich and somewhere to go, and clean and real and nowhere to be,
