THE RAW STORY

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio argued on Sunday that Barack Obama should not be able to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in his last year in office because he was a second term president with only a “few months” left.

Appearing on at least five Sunday morning shows after the unexpected death of Justice Scalia, Rubio asserted that the voters should be able to weigh in before someone was nominated.

“Within the last year of the last few months of the president’s term, we should not be appointing Supreme Court justices,” Rubio insisted to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “In the last year of a president’s term, in his second term especially, there should not be Supreme Court nominees put into lifetime positions for a president that you’re not going to hold accountable at the ballot box.”
