Governor Kasich Walks Back Comments of SCOTUS Nom Merrick Garland

John Kasich, Republican presidential candidate and Governor of Ohio, is walking back comments he made during an interview earlier today. When speaking about Merrick Garland, President Obama’s pick for Supreme Court, Kasich noted that while he doesn’t think Obama should have named a replacement in the first place, he stated that members of the Senate should show Garland “respect” by granting him a meeting, and that he could possibly consider putting him under consideration as his own nominee. Now Kasich is back-peddling, telling supporters that that if he becomes president, he would not consider Merrick Garland.
