Just over a week since President Trump announced additions to his list of potential Supreme Court nominees, the nation’s highest court now has a vacancy.
Former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87. Ginsburg was appointed to the court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton, becoming only the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court. President Trump announced over the weekend his intention to fill the vacancy, with just 43 days until election day.
The president has alluded to a female being his nominee, though wouldn’t name a particular person.
