Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy might retire from the bench as early as this summer, a GOP senator said, and if true, President Trump would be able to nominate a justice who could tilt the nations highest court well to the right for the foreseeable future.
"I believe that we're going to have another Supreme Court justice this year," Heller said. "I think that Kennedy is going to retire some time early summer. That being the case, Republicans are going to have another opportunity to put another Supreme Court justice in place, which I am hoping will get our base a little motivated."

These appointments are critical and Trump is the right person to make these appointments.
Heller needs to be Cantorized for his amnesty vote.
I’d rather RBG just drop dead AND then Kennedy retire later.
Once Kennedy retires and is replaced by a true conservative, maybe Ruth Bader Ginsburg will accept that her opinion will no longer matter and retire.
not as much as replacing Ginsberg would.
last time we tried to cantorize someone, we ray moored ourselves in the foot.
“Excellent. Just think if Hillary were president now and would be appointing justices to SCOTUS.”
You can say that again.
Just to think this https://www.infowars.com/watch-hillary-clinton-repeatedly-falls-down-stairs-in-india/
could have had the pick.We dodged a bullet.
Need Kennedy + Ruthie, but I think she’s going to outlast Trump.
“Schumer will only vote for a female of color to replace Kennedy.”
Janice Rogers Brown?
I know, she is in her late 60’s, but she is female and a person of color. Let Schumer be seen laying into a black woman on national television!
At least two Conservative Justices would have suddenly died, like Scalia did, and we would now have a new Warren Court.
They would be reporting so postively she would shift the court left.
But since over 93% admit voting democrat, media reports this as awful.
“Possible retirement”. We have been going through this littlw charade every Spring and Summer for about the last six years.
Lets see what happens by the end of September. It always seems none of the judges is ready to surrender the high status that comes from the black robe.
They sound like CNN
I think she would have to be a lez, as well, to really close the Schumer vote.
