WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement after President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to serve as associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:
"A president on his way out of the White House should not make a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. The American people will soon decide our next president. That person should get to choose the next Supreme Court nominee. Give the people a voice, and let them chart the course for the court and the country."
