Minority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor Wednesday that President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court will be sent to the Senate “in a matter of a week or so.” “We have a constitutional duty to do our jobs, and that duty is to give advice and consent to the president when he sends a nomination up here,” Reid said. “We do it quickly. We don’t spend months and months doing this.”
