Nevada Sen. Harry Reid is urging Senate Republicans to do the right thing after his meeting with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

Reid says that Garland's qualifications are about as good as you can get and he doesn't understand what the Republicans are trying to do.

The GOP leadership is refusing to sit down with Garland, but there are a handful of Republicans who are open to meeting with him.

The White House is holding out hope that public pressure will be enough to force their hand.
