President Biden kept his campaign promise to nominate the first black female Supreme Court justice and named Ketanji Brown Jackson as his SCOTUS pick.

The 51-year-old judge currently serves D.C.’s federal appellate court and has been considered the front-runner for the vacancy since Justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement at the end of January.

Democrats currently do not need Republican help to confirm a Supreme Court justice. They can do it with their 50 votes and Vice President Kamala Harris breaking a deadlock.
