Nevada: Gov. Sandoval Says “No” To SCOTUS Consideration

Brian Sandoval, moderate Republican and current governor of Nevada, has taken himself out of consideration for the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Via Politico:

“Earlier today, I notified the White House that I do not wish to be considered at this time for possible nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States,” Sandoval said in a statement. “I have also spoken to Senators Reid, Heller and McConnell and expressed the same desire to them. The notion of being considered for a seat on the highest court in the land is beyond humbling and I am incredibly grateful to have been mentioned.”

It really became news that Sandoval was being floated as a possible replacement for recently deceased Antonin Scalia.
