SOUTH CAROLINA — Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death played a big role during Saturday night’s Republican presidential debate on February 13th. One of the big questions voters now have for the candidates is: who would replace Scalia?

Scalia was known for being an extremely conservative justice — and had many fans.

Donald Trump has floated a former Wisconsin supreme court justice as a possible candidate for Supreme Court.

“We could have a Diane Sykes, or a Bill Prior. We have some fantastic people, but this is a tremendous blow to conservatism,” said Trump.

Saturday night’s debate took place exactly one week before the South Carolina primary.
