Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire is going to be meeting with President Barack Obama's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Ayotte will have a one-on-one meeting with Merrick Garland on Wednesday in Washington.

New Hampshire's senior senator, Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, met with Garland last week.

Ayotte is part of a group of Republicans who have said they are willing to meet with Garland, but remain opposed to hearings and a vote.

She said she will meet with Garland out of courtesy and respect. She has said she plans to explain her view "that the people should have a voice in this important nomination through their votes in November."
