Obama Likely to Announce SCOTUS Nominee Wednesday: Report
Rumors are suggesting that President Barack Obama will reveal his next Supreme Court pick on Wednesday.
The Hill reports:
Obama will nominate either Judge Sri Srinivasan or Judge Merrick Garland, the report added.
Last week, Obama reportedly chose his top three candidates to fill the Supreme Court’s vacancy: Garland, the chief judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia; Srinivasan, of the same court; and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Paul Watford.
The Republican National Committee has created a task force to block any effort to nominate a justice until after the November elections.
Many Senate Republicans have said they will not hold hearings or votes on Obama’s replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
