MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson said he has met with President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee but he still doesn't want the Senate to confirm him.

Johnson issued a news release Tuesday saying he met with Merrick Garland earlier in the day.

He called the meeting cordial but still thinks the next president and Senate should choose the next justice.
