South Dakota’s US Senators are pushing back against President Obama’s recent Supreme Court nomination.
U.S. Senator Mike Rounds defends the decision to not hold hearings for any of Obama’s nominees, leaving the Supreme Court position vacant until after the election.
But critics say this strategy could backfire on the GOP.
President Obama recently nominated Merrick Garland for the Supreme Court. Garland is currently the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
