the white house and the governor's office both declined to confirm the story today... sandoval's office released this statement... saying quote: "neither governor sandoval nor his staff has been contacted by or talked to the obama administration regarding any potential vetting for the vacancy on the u.s. supreme court." however-- we do know that the governor met with senator harry reid in washington on monday. senator reid says... although he would prefer a more progressive nominee, he would support a sandoval nomination. reid: "he's a good person. he has a great record, and he's been a tremendously good governor in spite of having to deal with some very big problems there." president obama has said he's looking for a nominee with "impeccable legal credentials." and he hopes senate leadership will reconsider its position on blocking a hearing. you may recall that governor sandoval served as a judge for the u-s district court before he was elected governor. in campaign 2016.. the dust is settling after donald trump's
