Reid: ‘No Question in My Mind’ How Supreme Court Battle Will End

Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) wrote on Twitter Wednesday that he had no doubt Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would ultimately cave and allow President Barack Obama to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.

In the first of a pair of tweets, the liberal firebrand said that there were already signs Republicans had begun to back down.

Reid then issued his prediction.

Obama on Wednesday nominated Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death to Justice Antonin Scalia.

McConnell said Garland would not get a hearing and that a nominee would not be approved by the Senate until after the election.
