Reuters is reporting in the last few minutes that Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has asked that his name be withdrawn from consideration for the Supreme Court.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