President Obama just nominated Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. But he won't get a fair hearing from this Senate unless enough of us demand one.

Just moments ago, Mitch McConnell and his allies repeated their refusal to even consider the President's nominee. Instead of doing their job and giving Judge Garland a fair hearing, these ultra-partisan senators are refusing to even meet with him!0

The Senate must hold hearings and vote to confirm or reject Merrick Garland by June 8. That's 84 days from today, the exact number of days it took to confirm Justice Kennedy in 1988 under similar circumstances. Anything longer will be an offense to the court, the Constitution, and the voters.
