Political science professor Dr. Joe Ura at Texas A&M discusses why the Republican leadership's refusal to vote on the Supreme Court nominee will ultimately hurt the party.

President Barack Obama has nominated centrist judge Merrick Garland, but Republican leadership in Congress has said they will not be holding confirmation hearings or voting on Garland. They say, they think the next president should choose the nominee.

Dr. Ura explains why this plan may hurt them during election season.
