U.S. President Barack Obama talks to Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval as he arrives at McCarran International Airport in Las VegasBy Richard Cowan and Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, a moderate Republican, took himself out of consideration for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday as Senate Republicans held firm to their vow not to act on any nominee by President Barack Obama for the job. Asked if the White House was disappointed by Sandoval’s decision, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at a briefing, “He’s obviously entitled to make decisions about his own career.” Sandoval’s name surfaced as a possible nominee on Wednesday but Senate Republicans quickly said they still would not act on any Obama nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the Feb. 13 death of long-serving conservative Justice Antonin Scalia.
