Mike Gallagher: Race Is What Matters to Joe Biden in His Supreme Court Nominee
We've got a president who absolutely is is willing to confirm that race is what matters to his next Supreme Court to his first Supreme Court nominee. And listen, I'm going to be very blunt here, and I'm going to be fair because I try every day to be as fair as I can be. Somebody pointed out last night that Ronald Reagan was committed to having the first female justice on the Supreme Court. And that kind of puts it in perspective, a historic perspective. He nominated and Sandra Day O'Connor was confirmed. And there's no difference there. That isn't looking for somebody with the best qualifications that is saying a woman should be represented on the Supreme Court and Joe Biden is confirming that a black woman will be nominated to his Supreme Court. Here's Biden confirming his intention to fill this vacancy with Stephen breyers announcement of his retirement with a black woman. I will select the nominee worthy of justice prior's legacy of excellence and decency. All I've been studying candidates backgrounds and writings, I've made no decision except one. A person I will nominate will be some of the extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, and integrity. And that person will be the first black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court.
