Bowdoin’s Selinger Discusses Scalia Succession Question


The sudden death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia earlier this month has been described as a “monumental political development” with some observers even saying it could lead to a constitutional crisis.

The demise of Scalia, a conservative, leaves America’s highest court more or less evenly split between liberals and conservatives, and has paved the way for a fierce political debate about who will replace him.

Assistant Professor of Government Jeffrey Selinger spoke with College Writer and Mulimedia Producer Tom Porter about the Scalia succession question.
