President Biden has decided which black woman he is going to nominate to the Supreme Court, according to multiple media reports.
The president is expected to make the announcement Friday.
Media outlets report he will pick Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, 51, to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, who announced his retirement last month.
Jackson, who once clerked for Breyer, is a judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, where many of her high-profile rulings have been overruled by high courts.
A source told CNN she accepted Biden’s offer in a call Thursday night.
