If it’s someone Obama would be okay with, there’s a catch.
The White House is vetting Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada for the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a source familiar with the process confirmed to CBS News on Wednesday.
Sandoval met with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, on Monday while the governor was in Washington, D.C. for the National Governor’s Association meeting, the source said.
The two spoke on the phone last week in Nevada and agreed to meet in person this week. The source said that they discussed the Supreme Court and that the White House was considering Sandoval.
