Nominee or not, Klobuchar in the mix as talk swirls around Supreme Court seat

 


U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar is likely to mix it up in the coming political brawl in Washington around replacing Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and not just because her own name has again surfaced as a potential high court nominee.

Minnesota’s Klobuchar and her Democratic colleague, U.S. Sen. Al Franken, both sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which vets Supreme Court appointees. Scalia’s death on Saturday immediately opened a political divide between Democrats and Republicans about who should get to pick his successor: President Obama or the next president.
