Hearing Problem

Washington, D.C.—Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's nominee for the Supreme Court, arrives for a meeting with Illinois Republican Senator Mark Kirk at the Capitol on March 29. Kirk was the first Republican to meet Garland, after GOP leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced they would not even hold hearings on the nominee. "I think we should be doing our job," Kirk told reporters, calling for “rational, adult, open-minded consideration of the constitutional process.” Sixteen Republican senators said they were open to meeting Garland, but two (Jerry Moran of Kansas and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska) later reversed their position.
