(The Week) Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) thinks his GOP colleagues ought to give President Obama's Supreme Court nominee a chance.
In an interview on a Long Island talk radio show, King passed on the chance to blast Obama for submitting a nomination, instead opting to scold his fellow Republicans for their refusal to even consider nominee Merrick Garland. "I disagree with some of the Republicans in that the process itself, the Constitution should be respected," King said. "I think senators should meet with him. And I think they should also consider having hearings. Not bring it to the floor for a vote, but have the hearings so the American people can see what Judge Garland's views are."
