GOP Sen. Toomey: I’d Consider Garland If The Next Prez Nominated Him

March 16, 2016 12:39 p.m.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) tweeted Wednesday that he’d consider Judge Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, if he were nominated again by the next President.

Toomey previously said that “it’s not that big a deal” to leave the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat on the high court vacant.

Obama announced Wednesday morning from the White House’s Rose Garden that he was nominating Garland and called for a “fair” process that would allow the D.C. circuit court judge an interview and a vote in the Senate.
