WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today released the following statement on President Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court:

“I am pleased that the President has done his job and offered a nominee with strong federal judicial experience.

“I now plan to do my job by reviewing Judge Garland’s experience and qualifications for our highest court. I also look forward to meeting with Judge Garland. I hope my Republican colleagues will do the same thing.

“In the spirit of bipartisanship and cooperation, I would encourage my Republican colleagues to give Judge Garland fair consideration. To ignore this nomination is wrong and irresponsible. Senate Republicans need to do their job and provide Judge Garland a hearing and an up-or-down vote. I believe the American people deserve to have a full and functioning Supreme Court working for them.”
