    Democrat Harry Reid backs Republican for Supreme Court

    Democrat Harry Reid backs Republican for Supreme Court

    By Manu Raju, Ted Barrett and Deirdre Walsh, CNN
    Updated 2:54 PM ET, Wed February 24, 2016

    Washington (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he would support Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval as the next Supreme Court justice, putting his weight behind a moderate Hispanic Republican from his home state.

    Sandoval, a former federal judge, is being vetted for the spot, according to a source close to the process.

    In an interview with CNN, Reid, who met with Sandoval on Monday and discussed the vetting issue with him, said he would endorse the Nevada governor for the spot.


    "I don't pick the justices, but I know if he were picked, I would support the man," Reid said of Sandoval.

    "He's a good person, has a great record, and has been a tremendously good governor in spite of having to deal with some very big problems there," Reid said.

    The move could put Republicans in a bind if they refuse to consider a nominee from their own party who could appeal to the important Latino voting bloc.

    But it could disappoint progressives who are pushing for a more liberal justice.

    Reid was asked whether President Barack Obama should pick a moderate who would put pressure on the GOP to accept or a progressive to fire up the base.

    "I talked to the President, I talked to the White House chief of staff many times," he said. "I talked to his political guy today. And he should pick who he things is best."

    Reid said he was told Obama would make the decision "soon."

    Asked if Obama picking Sandoval would change his opposition to a nominee, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a member of the Judiciary Committee, said, "I don't think so."

    Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana, a Republican known for working across the aisle, said he would not back Sandoval or any other Republican the White House sends their way.

    "I think we can all understand in an election year they're going to try to turn this into a political football and try to make the Republicans look bad. And we made the decision that this was about principle, not the personality," Coats said.

    "We pretty much had unanimous agreement that this is what we are going to do. We knew the White House will play games with us no matter what we did," he added.

    I think the Republican Senate should stand on principle and withhold consideration until a new President is sworn in.

    I have personally known Harry Reid & his wife Landra for almost 20 years and trust me when I tell you..........

    If Harry Reid supports, recommends, offers, suggest, refers, invites or what ever or who ever he is connected or affiliated
    with..... STAY AWAY!

    Right now, Reid owns Nevada and controls all aspects of government and the gaming control board which controls the Casinos.

    Reid & his family play extremely dirty. My opinion, Reid is second most corrupt politician in our Nations history, Obama being #1 most corrupt.

    Reid will go to great lengths to accomplish his mission. He will conspire, say or do anything to anyone without remorse to get his way or complete his agenda.

    Harry Reid does nothing out of the goodness of heart and has something to gain here..... Stay away!
