Gov. Brian Sandoval is withdrawing his name from consideration for a Supreme Court nomination. Reno Public Radio’s Julia Ritchey reports.
Sandoval issued a brief statement earlier today saying he’s humbled by the mention but has informed the White House that he's not interested in the post right now.
This comes a day after reports that President Obama’s team was vetting Sandoval as a possible candidate.
GOP leaders are refusing to consider any Supreme Court nomination until a new president takes office.
