SCOTUS nominee meets with Sen. Schumer
? Native New Yorker Elana Kagan sat down with Sen. Charles Schumer in Washington this morning. Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York says she is a consensus builder "who can bridge the 5-4 splits that have become so routine" on the court.
Kagan has been meeting with Congressional leaders since President Obama picked her for the high court on Monday.
Schumer is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The committee will hold confirmation hearings on Kagan this summer.
