Two days have passed since the President of the United States nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill a vacancy on the United States Supreme court under Art. II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution.
-Do you have any issues with Merrick Garland's ability?
-WICKER: You know, Erin, this is why I'm glad we made our position clear early on. This is not at all about any particular nominee. I don't know anything about Judge Garland's qualifications, but the position that we've taken consistently is that this is a decision that the American people can now make during an election year, and it's wrong this far into the presidential election to have someone swing the court in a different direction without trusting the people to speak to that issue first.
