GOP urged to confirm Supreme Court nominee after Trump win

Greg Nash, The Hill

A top conservative blog is urging Senate Republicans to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court pick after Donald Trump’s win in Indiana’s GOP presidential primary.

“Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, this is not even a close call. There is absolutely no reason to drag this out any longer. [Merrick] Garland is not a great choice, but he is not a terrible one, either,” Leon H. Wolf, the managing editor of the conservative website RedState, wrote Wednesday.

The comments come after Trump victory Tuesday night, forcing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) out of the GOP race and securing a spot as the presumptive nominee.

Senate Republican leadership has been adamant that Garland will not get a hearing or a vote and that the next president will fill the seat vacated by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

Wolf, however, warned Wednesday that the “calculus has changed — confirm Merrick Garland before it is too late.”

“My main concern right now would be that Barack Obama would withdraw Garland’s nomination today. The fact that Merrick Garland still exists as an option right now is a gift that should not be squandered,” he wrote.

Wolf added that Republicans “must know” they will lose the White House, and likely the Senate, too, with Trump as their nominee. Senate Republicans are defending 24 seats in November, a handful in states previously carried by Obama.

Some Republicans have floated a confirmation during the lame-duck period for Garland if their party loses in November. They argue that he is more moderate than whomever Hillary Clinton would nominate if she wins the White House.

But Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) — the Senate’s top two Republicans — have shot down a vote on Garland after the election.
