Biden team putting together list of Black female court picks

By ALEXANDRA JAFFE

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden said Tuesday that his team is putting together a list of potential options for his first Supreme Court nominee, which he has already pledged will be a Black woman.

“We are putting together a list of African American women who are qualified and have the experience to be on the court. I am not going to release that until we go further down the line in vetting them as well,” the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee told reporters after a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware.

Biden had previously committed that one of his first acts as president would be to nominate a Black woman to serve on the country’s highest court, but he had resisted calls from advocacy groups to commit to releasing a full list of options during the campaign.

In contrast, President Donald Trump pledged earlier this month to release a new list of Supreme Court nominees from which he would choose, declaring that “based on decisions being rendered now, this list is more important than ever before.” Biden said on Tuesday when asked about the list, however, that “one thing I hesitate to do is follow anything this President does because he does it all wrong.”

11. Hill is a registered Republican and too old...no thanks

There are many more qualified progressive AA women he can choose.

8. How about leaving Michelle Obama out of it.

There’s more than one black woman in the US.
