Gotta give a nope to all three of these potentials. As was mentioned earlier, he needs to nominate someone who has a few decades to give.District Judge Wilhelmina "Mimi" Wright
Circuit Judge Eunice Lee
Circuit Judge Candace Jackson-Akiwumi
They could and would if they were in the majority in the Senate. But they’re not so they can’t.The question is: can the GOP stall the nomination for 3 years?
Candace Jackson-Akiwumi is in your quote, and unless I've completely lost what little ability I had to vaguely guess age, there's no way she's that old.Kruger isn't in my quote. She and Brown-Jackson are my two top picks.
What happened: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said he's open to supporting President Joe Biden's nominee to the Supreme Court, even if the pick is more ideologically liberal than he is.
"Whoever he puts up will have experience and we'll be able to judge them off of that. But as far as just the philosophical beliefs, no, that will not prohibit me from supporting somebody."
Democrats can exhale: It's always good to get these things stated publicly but — as we noted yesterday — this shouldn't really be a big surprise. Manchin and fellow centrist Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) have supported Biden's judicial picks this year ... unlike other parts of his agenda.
