Passing of Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg sets major stakes in 2020 election


The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg leaves a vacancy at a crucial time, Pete Williams reports for NBC News. The court is due to open its next term in October - now with 8 justices instead of 9. There's also the question of whether Republican senators will try to fill the seat with one of President Trump's nominees before the election.
