Republican Sen. Susan Collins responded simply when asked about Mitch McConnel's stance on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.

"I believe that we should follow the regular order in considering this nominee," she said.

But the Maine senator's point marks what could be a shift away from McConnel's - and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's - hardline opposition to holding hearings for Garland.
