Republicans show signs of caving on Obama nomination to Supreme Court

Feb. 16, 2016

Will Senate Republicans hold firm to a vow by Sen. Mitch McConnell to block any consideration of a Supreme Court nominee to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia until President Obama leaves office?

The GOP is showing signs of division on the issue.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa – chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which holds the hearings for Supreme Court nominees – told Radio Iowa Tuesday he isn’t ready to make that commitment.

“I would wait until the nominee is made before I would make any decisions,” he said. “In other words, take it a step at a time.”

But Grassley said he doesn’t plan to confirm any pick by Obama.

“This is a very serious position to fill, and it should be filled and debated during the campaign and filled by either Hillary Clinton, Senator Sanders or whoever’s nominated by the Republicans, and [they should] make this decision a very important part of the election coming up,” he said.
