6:32 pm
i think you're going to see a republican split if you will on whether they should meet with him whether they should have a hearing. >> reporter: talk about gambling, huh? some senate republicans are on record as saying there is, quote, no question that garland could be confirmed. that is minus a heated presidential election. the nominee will make his first trip to capitol hill tomorrow. >> thank you. speaking of campaign 2016, california has suddenly become a critical state in this election. the primary isn't until june 7. but unless something dramatic happens, it is going to be in play for the republicans. 172 delegates are available. but here's where it's complicated. most of the delegates are awarded to the winner of each of the state's 53 congressional districts. here's the delegate count right now. donald trump out in front but he need to get more than half of the delegates remaining in order to lock up the nomination. otherwise, the republicans will have an open convention to
