Clinton: Americans should put Court nomination at forefront

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Hillary Clinton wants voters to consider what Republican front-runner Donald Trump might do to shape the Supreme Court.

Clinton plans to say in a speech in Madison, Wisconsin, on Monday that Trump could roll back the rights of individuals, empower corporations and undo some of the nation's progress.

Clinton is campaigning in Wisconsin ahead of the state's primary and was speaking Monday at the University of Wisconsin about President Barack Obama's nomination of Judge Merrick Garland.

Clinton's campaign says the Democratic presidential candidate plans to call on Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley of Iowa to commit to giving Garland a hearing.

And she also intends to rebuke Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, who is among the Republicans blocking the Garland nomination.
