    Democratic presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton speaks during her primary night gathering at Southern New Hampshire University on Feb. 9, 2016 in Hooksett, NH.

    Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter Monday to excoriate Republicans who are intending to block President Obama's  Supreme Court appointment. 

    The newly available High Court seat was left vacant by the recent passing of Justice Antonin Scalia on Feb. 13.

    Clinton said in an 11-point fusillade that Senate Republicans are putting politics over the Constitution by vowing to block the nomination, which she said is a "new low."

    "I have news for Republicans who would put politics over the Constitution: Refusing to do your duty isn’t righteous, it's disgraceful," tweeted Clinton.
