Excerpt from The Resurgent
By Erick Erickson
Donald Trump says Republicans have no choice except to vote for him.
"If you really like Donald Trump, that’s great, but if you don’t, you have to vote for me anyway. You know why? Supreme Court judges, Supreme Court judges,” Trump said at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
"Have no choice, sorry, sorry, sorry. You have no choice,” Trump continued, calling the late Justice Antonin Scalia a “great guy” and acknowledging tied decisions at the Supreme Court after his death.
The Supreme Court is always the last card the GOP pulls out when it knows it is losing. The GOP has held the conservative movement hostage over the idea, but it was the GOP that gave us Souter, Kennedy, and Roberts in the name of holding a conservative majority.
