Abstract

Last week Supreme Court Associate Justice, Anthony Kennedy announced that he would be retiring following more than 30 years on the bench. Lauren C. Bell writes that, while Kennedy has been a moderate voice on the Supreme Court for nearly 15 years, he has now chosen to be replaced by a Republican President and a Republican-controlled Senate. Whoever follows Kennedy, she argues, is likely to be young and conservative, and will galvanize partisans on both sides of the aisle as they move through confirmation ahead of the November midterm elections.
