Justice Kennedy Retiring; President Trump Gets 2nd Supreme Court Pick
By MARK SHERMAN , Associated Press
Without him, the court will be split between four liberal justices who were appointed by Democratic presidents and four conservatives who were named by Republicans. Trump's nominee is likely to give the conservatives a solid majority and will face a Senate process in which Republicans hold the slimmest majority, but Democrats can't delay confirmation.
Trump's first high court nominee, Justice Neil Gorsuch, was confirmed in April 2017.
