White House Hails 'Momentum' In Senate Potentially Considering Supreme Court Pick

The White House isn't giving up on Obama's Supreme Court pick being confirmed.

"As you know, before we announced him people were saying they would not even dare to meet with him," McDonough said.

"I'm not surprised given what's happening in Washington these days to see that special interests are kind of pulling a lot of money into this thing," McDonough said. "And what we don't want to see happen is have these unelected special interests determine the fate of somebody who is a very patriotic man, someone who has dedicated his life to the protection of law in this country, have that determine the outcome of this."
