Johnson Statement on Meeting with Judge Garland

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said this after meeting with President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland on Tuesday:

“I enjoyed a very cordial meeting with Judge Garland. My advice to President Obama and the rest of my Senate colleagues has not changed. Let the American people have a voice in the composition of the Supreme Court. Instead of a lame duck president and Senate nominating and confirming, a new president and Senate – elected by the people only a few months from now – should make that important decision. I can’t think of a fairer or more democratic process."
