Breaking: Sandoval Out?

Reuters is reporting in the last few minutes that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has asked that his name be withdrawn from consideration for the Supreme Court. Here’s the tweet:

More from the Las Vegas Review Journal:

“Earlier today, I notified the White House that I do not wish to be considered at this time for possible nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States,” Sandoval said in a prepared statement. “I have also spoken to Senators Reid, Heller and McConnell and expressed the same desire to them.”

As I said here yesterday, hard to imagine who wants to be put forward as a pawn in this political drama. Expect a wacko nominee to whip up the Dem grassroots.
