billions wasted as -saving meds are literally thrown away. patients are paying the price. "nightly news" beginsght now. from nbc news world headquarters in new york, this is "nbc lester holt. good evening. president obama has made his move and is tonight locked into had a high-stakes stare-down contest with senate republicans over theture of the supreme court. the president has nominated federal appeals court judge merrick garland regard as a m replace the late conservative justice the late antonin scalia, but even as the president warnedainst braintree split sizing the processes, the senate majority leader said there would be no action taken on the nomination. republicans demanding the choice be left to the next president.tice correspondent pete williams has late details. >> reporter: the president introduced merrick garland as a judge who is decent, modest and ded. >> his long commitment
earned him the respect and admiration of leaders from both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: with his wife lynn watching in the rose ga garland was emotional. >> this is the greatest honor of my life other than leanne marry me 28 years ago. >> reporter: one of his two daughters missed the moment, hiking in the mountains. >> out of cell range when the president called. >> reporter: grandson of russian immigrants garland grew up in chicago. >> my name is merrick garland. >> reporter: as a federal prosecutor he eam that brought oklahoma city bomber timothy mcveigh to trial. on the bench he's been a moderate voting to uphold environmental laws but often tough on criminals. >> ideologicallyrrick garland is in the center, maybe a little bit to the left. he seems mostly to be a judicial craftsman. figure out what the law is, not what he might want t be. >> reporter: at 63, garland is the oldest supreme court nominee in nearly 50 years,
court in 1997, he wasnfirmed 76-23 with 32 republican votes, i po administration now emphasizes. >> i simply ask republicans in the senate to give him a fair hearing. >> reporter: but senate republicans continue to insist they won't even consider garland'smination because the next president should make that choice. >> the decision the senate announced weeks ago remains about ainciple and not a person. >> reporter: so far only a few republicans have said they will even meet with garland. >> i would not feel comfortable to meet with the president's nominee to the highest court of the land. >> reporter: the administration has some hope that if a president, the senate would consider garland's nomination in the closing days. obama administration, and tonight one infl republican, utah's orrin hatch said he's probably be open to that. lester? >> all right, pete. so much being framed by this election. on that note letturn to who the next president might be after very big nights
and hillary clinton. trump won four out of five states up for grabs, except for theg prize of ohio where that state's governor john kasich scored his first victory. the republican establishment is left with limited options to stop trump, ushing this race all the way to a contested convention. but if that happens, trump is warning of riots. we've got more on all that beginning with s hallie jackson. hi, hallie. >> reporter: hi, lester, good evening. we've learned that in the last 24 to 48 campaign held three meetings across the country about how to get the most delegate support. john kasich brought on a top operative to focus on a contestednvention and trump staffers met to game out how to pick up marco rubio's supporters. all of them looking ahead at what could happen next in this wild race. three candidates left. donald trump's lead almost three times bigger than it was, now three scenarios for the gop establishment. finally surrender to
fight furiously against him or find somebody else to take him on. surrendering to a trump ticket could happen. >> this was an amazing evening. >> reporter: before new york's primary next month. the billionaire or "morning joe." >> you have people on the show all the time talking about stopping donald trump who with calling me to work out a deal where they want to become involved. >> reporter: more influence for trump, the party cancelling monday's debate after he said he wouldn't show. he still needs 55% of the remaining delegates but that's better math than ted cruz. for john kasich it's mathematically impossible, unless he and the stop trump movement take the fight to a contested convention. >> for those that worry about a convention, it will be right in the open. there's no closed rooms. >> reporter: even before cleveland, campaigns will security delegates state by state. >> they are going to find out pretty soon that they signed up for a party and ended up in a bar fight. >> reporter: talk cruz and kasich could team up. >> there would absolutely be a place for john kasich, absolutely a place for
people in the republican field in a future administration. >> reporter: but if that's not palatable or plausible a third option. find someone else, like speaker of the house paul ryan. >> people say what about the -- the contested convention. i say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. we'll see. who knows. >> reporter: his spokeswoman insisting ryan will not accept a nomination, but ryan said something similar before running for vp and house speaker. three scenarios, no one obvious outcome still four months from the finish line. hallie jackson, nbc news, houston. >> reporter: this is peter alexander in cleveland. before republicans uncork the confetti here, what might have been donald trump's coronation could instead be a contested convention where no candidates won a majority of delegates. those delegates you keep hearing about -- >> unanimously. >> reporter: yeah, those guys. based on the primaries and caucuses the republican party will assign more than 2,400 of them. right now trump is trouncing the competition but still has a long way to go
>> he needs to win 55% of the delegates going forward. that's not undoable, but it's also not -- not a layup. >> reporter: today trump warned bad things would happen if he doesn't get the nomination. >> if we're 20 votes short or if we're -- if we're, you know, 100 short and we're at 1,100 and somebody else ask at 500 or 400, i don't think you can say that we don't get automatically. i think you'd have riots >> reporter: last time a heated primary season ended without a clear nominee, 1976. ronald reagan challenging incumbent president gerald ford, but ford convinced enough delegates to lock up his bid on the first ballot. trump could try to do the same. that floor fight would happen here at cleveland's quicken loans arena, home of lebron james and the cavaliers where a contested convention this summer would be the political equivalent of overtime. here's how it works n.first round most delegates are bound to vote for the candidate they represent, but if there's no clear winner they keep voting and more and
