President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Chief Judge Merrick Garland, climbed the Hill yesterday to meet with Senate Democrats. Here he meets with Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, which would have to vote on Garland’s nomination before a confirmation vote on the Senate floor.
Republican committee members have repeatedly said they would not meet with Garland, who Obama nominated to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia last Wednesday.
