Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told Politico Tuesday he will back Merrick Garland’s nomination for Attorney General.
Asked by the publication whether he supported Garland’s nomination, the minority leader replied “I do.” However, the outlet reported that the senator did not elaborate further on his reasoning for the decision.
The article goes on to state the following:
McConnell blocked Garland as a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia following his death during the Obama administration, saying he would not allow consideration of a justice in an election year while the Senate and White House were held by opposite parties. Neil Gorsuch, then-President Trump’s nominee for the seat, was confirmed in 2017.
Several Republicans have already announced their support for him to lead the Justice Department, including Sen. Thom Tillisand, John Cornyn, and Chuck Grassley. The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also spoke positively of Garland.
The Senate Judiciary Committee held a two-day confirmation hearing this week for Garland and will hold a committee vote on his nomination March 1.
