do you think a nominee of the president should come for an up or down vote in the senate this year? >> it's up to mitch the senate. i'm not a senate and not running for the united states senate. if he's going to take that path, i respect that. what shouldn't happen is in an election year, a president in a very of time, should nominate someone and have it be passed. there shouldn't be deference to the executive, is my at a cope out, saying it's up to senator mcconnell? shouldn't you take a position? >> i am taking a re is an up or down vote, it should be rejected based on the history of how president obama selects judges. if there is no vote, it's fine, what i'm saying is there shouldn't be an obama -- justice shouldn't be appointed in an let it be an important part of the election process. there's a lot riding on this. the second amendment, religious
be determined by this pick. >> for those saying that there shouldn't be an up or down vote, and i understand you're not necessarily one of them, are constitutional ground? in other words, you said the other night, you're an article ii guy. it makes clear nominates, is senate advices and consents. it doesn't say, except in an election year. >> the president has the right to as my point in the debate. the senate has the right to carry out the rules. my point is, irrespective of that, there should not be an ed on the record of president obama's selection of judges. they're way out of the mainstream. this should be an important point that we have in the i'm more than happy to litigate that. even though i'm not a lawyer, i'm happy to litigate the constitutionality of this case. >> let me talk about your president bush, george w. bush, will be on the trail with you this morning.

trail, does this kind of invite that relit -litigation of the past? >> it's interesting thattrump praises putin and attacks my brother. i think in a south carolina primary, that's probably the wrong place to be. >> did your brother give you for dealing with someone like donald trump? >> i don't think my brother ever had any experience with dealing with a person like donald trump. he's a bully and yand up. i'm the only guy standing up against him. he's hijacking the conservative cause by running as a republican. there's nothing in his past that would suggest he is a i think it's important to stand up to him. do it respectfully, do it with civility, but you cannot allow a bully to take over this overnor jeb bush, we'll be watching today. thank you for your time this morning. appreciate it. >> you bet. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders say the president has theity to nominate a new justice. this as the battle between them
