Supreme Court Justice, Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement on Thursday.
Kennedy has been on the bench since Ronald Regan was President. Kennedy has never liked being labeled the “Swing Vote;” however, for many years it has been his vote that has often decided the outcome of cases in a closely divided court.
President Trump says he will nominate Kennedy’s successor from a list of 25 names already under consideration.
The Senate Majority Leader says lawmakers will vote on a nominee in the fall.
