Nominating justices to the Supreme Court is one of the primary duties of the President. In naming Judge Merrick Garland, a seasoned jurist with a commendable record, President Obama has fulfilled that constitutional duty," Rep.

Refusing to even meet with a nominee, as Senate Republicans are doing, is an unprecedented level of partisan dysfunction."
