Marco Rubio, along with several other presidential candidates and Republican congressman are hell-bent on preventing President Obama from carrying out his constitutional duties to nominate a replacement for the recently deceased Justice Scalia.
Rubio appeared several times on CNN on Saturday and Sunday to share his view that he feels it is improper for a president with 11 months left in his term to elect a lifetime nominee to the courts.
