7:04 am
rare instance ere his impact is felt. he was the leader off a movement on the court and in the country. some of his highlights no question about it, the second amendment, that case guaranteed the individual right to bear arms. 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. cathey get out of that? the conservatives had that one lined up. liberals will likely win that one. 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 b be conservative, are going to be very sorely missed. >> understandable why that political battle is heating up. >> it's begun already.
7:05 am
scalia, it's shaping up to be a monumental fight. 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 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 anunced his death on saturday, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell declared the vacancy should not be filled until we have a new senator marco rubio told george, the senate shouldn't start the obama nominates. >> within the last few months ofof thpresident's term we shouldn't be appointing supreme court justices. no the president can nominate whoever he wants. the s 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.

7:07 am
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. he's a member ofof the judiary committee. 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 apelle yacht judges and thosewo 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,
7:08 am
>> 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 soed meyer and kagan. when an election is er, the president wins, they have a chance to o send quafied 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. they 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 whwho's libel, i'll intend to vote for them if they're qualified. so this election does have >> what's the odds of this >> very little. >> zero?

7:10 am
democrats but control of the vernment. >> you would still support him? >> i got to really re-evaluate after what he said about george w. bush. 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 t the past president of willfully lying about the facts and circumstances of iraq and being reonsible for 9/11 that's something that comes from the 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 thi primary, so o importanfor
