President Biden said Thursday he will announce the nominee for the Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer before the end of next month, and that she will be a Black woman.
“I have made no decision other than this: The person I will nominate will be someone with a Black heritage.” said Biden about the nominee for the Supreme Court seat currently held by Justice Stephen Breyer.
“I intend this decision to take effect when the Court rises for the summer recess this year (typically late June or early July) assuming that my successor has been nominated and confirmed,” Breyer wrote in a letter to Biden Thursday.
“Somebody was saying from the Senate that they want to do what the Republicans did with Amy Coney Barrett, and she was approved in 30 days,” University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato told Fox News. “If that happens it won’t have any effect on the midterms because people will have forgotten about it by November.”
