John Kasich: Republican Senators Should Sit and Meet With Obama's SCOTUS Pick

In a pre-taped interview on "Face the Nation," John Kasich weighed in on Barack Obama's SCOTUS pick and said that Republican senators should, "probably ought to all sit down and meet with the guy."

This comes after weeks of debate over whether or not Republicans should even consider any of Obama's picks for the Supreme Court.  At first, things seemed to be steady with Republican elites as they held their ground, but cracks within the group are slowly starting grow and Democrats are not letting up.

"As someone who's talked about unity, would you take a look at Mr. Garland...if you were elected president?" host John Dickerson asked Kasich.

"Well, you know, he received you know overwhelming support, I think even from Senator Hatch, so of course we'd think about it," Kasich replied. "The way we do it, John, is we look at a person's record. I want a conservative who's not going to make the law but who will interpret the law and somebody of high standing. I don't care about their peccadilloes you know 30 years ago. But we have a process. I've appointed over 100 judges in Ohio, including a woman that, fortunately, I was able to appoint to the Ohio Supreme Court. And we've had good success with our selections."
