In an appearance on MSNBC on Thursday, Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) waffled on his current avoidance of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

MSNBC host Hallie Jackson asked Jones why he hasn’t scheduled a meeting with Kavanaugh, a common courtesy that senators offer the president’s choice.

“The holdup is that I want to see the hearing,” Jones said. “I don’t want meet with him until after I see how he does at the hearings.”

The red-state Democrat added that he does not want to “reinvent the wheel” with two interviews of the nominee.

Jones is considered one of the Democratic swing votes in the Supreme Court fight.
