Mark Kirk becomes first Republican to meet with Garland

Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., has become the first Republican to meet with Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee.

According to CBS News, the two met Tuesday afternoon on Capitol Hill. Sen. Kirk encouraged the other senators to follow his suit and meet with Garland. He said that those refusing to do so are being “closed-minded.”

There are some other senators who share Kirk’s views. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, has expressed willingness to meet with Garland and plans on doing so soon.
