President Obama nominated Merrick Garland for the empty seat on the Supreme Court. So who is Merrick Garland and what’s his track record?
Meet Merrick Garland, Obama’s SCOTUS nominee
“Merrick Garland almost made it to the Supreme Court six years ago, but he was saved for a time when President Obama might need someone palatable to Republicans to replace a conservative justice.”
Why Obama Nominated Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court
“In the face of Republican opposition to a Supreme Court nomination, President Obama needed a candidate who had support from Republicans in the past but who would still move the court in a progressive direction.”
Obama just chose Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court. Republicans still won’t confirm him.
“Come January 2017, Republicans have a chance at controlling the House of Representatives, the Senate and the White House.”
