Biden Has Chosen Supreme Court Nominee

President Joe Biden has decided on a nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and is set to reveal his selection for the first Black woman to serve the high court by the end of February.

Last month, Biden said that he would announce his choice to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer by the end of February. He pledged to use the opportunity to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court.

The president has so far focused on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, Justice Leondra Kruger of the California Supreme Court, and U.S. District Judge Michelle Childs, CNN reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Biden has interviewed all three, according to the sources.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday that Biden has not formally offered the job to anyone, but assured that the administration is on track to making an announcement by Monday.

Breyer announced last month that he would step down at the end of the current Supreme Court term.
