Trump and Clinton battle it out

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in the second debate.

ST. LOUIS (AP, WUSA9) - Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are laying out their criteria for Supreme Court selections.

During Sunday night's debate, Clinton said she wants justices who understand how the world "really works." She wants ones who will support the legality of abortion and same-sex marriage. She noted that several of the justices Trump has said he'd consider oppose those rights.

Trump said he wants a judge in the tradition of Justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia's death this winter opened a vacancy on the court that still has not been filled. The Republican-controlled Senate has refused to consider President Obama's nominee to fill Scalia's seat.

Watch parties occurred at restaurants and bars across the District Sunday night.
