CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire is going to meet with Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

Shaheen’s meeting is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Shaheen held a news conference last week calling for a hearing and a vote.

A group of Republicans, including New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte, say they’re willing to meet with President Barack Obama’s nominee, but remain opposed to hearings and a vote.
