Rounds Statement on Meeting with Judge Garland

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) made the following statement after his meeting with Judge Merrick Garland, President Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“As a former governor, I respect the president’s responsibility to make a nomination. Today I met with Judge Garland as a courtesy.  During our meeting, I thanked him for allowing the president to place his name in nomination. However, I believe that Justice Scalia’s replacement should be nominated by the next President of the United States.”
