"From our years together at the D.C. Circuit, we were best buddies. We disagreed now and then, but when I wrote for the Court and received a Scalia dissent, the opinion ultimately released was notably better than my initial circulation. Justice Scalia nailed all the weak spots -- the 'applesauce' and 'argle bargle' -- and gave me just what I needed to strengthen the majority opinion."
From Jim Obergefell:
Thank you for your service to our country, Justice Scalia. Condolences to your family and friends. https://t.co/ajadxZ5EQ6— Jim Obergefell (@JimObergefell) February 13, 2016
From Ted Cruz:
"It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don't do this in an election year."
