WASHINGTON — Sen. Amy Klobuchar will meet one-on-one with Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan later today, officials with the White House and Klobuchar’s office confirmed.
The meeting is tentatively scheduled for 2:15 p.m. Central time, and will take place in Klobuchar’s office here on the third floor of the Hart Senate office building.
Klobuchar is a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will consider Kagan’s nomination later this year. Klobuchar has been very complimentary of Kagan so far, and is widely expected to eventually back her nomination.
An expected meeting between Kagan and Sen. Al Franken, also a member of the Judiciary Committee, has not yet been announced.
