Angus King meets with Merrick Garland, says he deserves a hearing

Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, is one of the latest senators to meet with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. King was impressed with Garland and stated that he deserves a public hearing.

This article from The Portland Press Herald stated that Sen. King found Garland to be what he considered a “small-conservative,” and not an activist at all. This was reassuring to Sen. King, especially seeing as the next Supreme Court judge is taking the place of Antonin Scalia, who was a strong conservative.

Sen. King is not the only senator from Maine to have met with Garland. He followed Sen. Susan Collins, who recently met with Garland and was also impressed.
