February 29, 2016 4:00 p.m.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Monday he believed the GOP-controlled Senate should hold hearings on President Obama’s eventual nominee to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

“As I’ve always said, I believe that’s absolutely the right thing to do,” Christie said at a press conference when asked if Senate Republicans should hold hearings on President Obama’s nominee to replace the last Justice Antonin Scalia.

“People can always vote up or down however they choose, but hearings should be held,” said Christie, who dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Donald Trump.
