On March 16, President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland as his choice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced that the Senate would not hold hearings or a vote on Justice Garland. Senator McConnell stated that the next Supreme Court justice should be nominated by the next President in 2017. Senate Republicans can block the any hearings or votes on the current nominee due to their majority in the Senate. Senate Democrats argue that the Constitution specifies that the Senate should at least hold a vote on any Justices nominated by a sitting President.  See recent SCOTUS news
