Remember Judge Garland, nominated in March by President Obama to fill the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court? Here’s what he’s been up to while waiting all summer for a vote from the GOP-led Senate.
After more than 100 days, the Supreme Court still needs its 9th judge, but the Senate GOP refuses to do its job and consider Judge Garland.

FACT: Garland has most federal judiciary experience of any nom in history. He's now also waited longer for a vote than any nom in history.
