(MSNBC) Hours after Donald Trump became the likely nominee, the conservative website RedState wrote that the Senate should confirm President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.
The rationale is that Trump can’t win a general election against likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and that Garland is the best scenario coming from a Democrat.
“Republicans must know that there is absolutely no chance that we will win the White House in 2016 now. They must also know that we are likely to lose the Senate as well. So the choices, essentially, are to confirm Garland and have another bite at the apple in a decade, or watch as President Clinton nominates someone who is radically more leftist and 10-15 years younger, and we are in no position to stop it,” Leon Wolf wrote on RedState.
