What's Next?: A Supreme Court Vacancy?

We know from the right’s singular focus on packing the lower courts with ideological judges, many of whom are on this Administration’s Supreme Court short list, that the goal is to shift the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence for a generation, with a particular eye on overturning Roe, Obergefell, and numerous other decisions that recognize important rights that we should not take for granted.
