President Biden committed to nominating a Black woman to succeed Justice Stephen Breyer as the next justice for the United States Supreme Court.
"Our process is going to be rigorous. I will select the nominee worthy of Justice Breyer's legacy of excellence and decency," he said Thursday. "The person I will nominate will be someone of extraordinary qualifications, character, experience and integrity. And that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court."
He said it's "long overdue."
"I made that commitment during the campaign for President, and I will keep that commitment," he added.
Biden said he hasn't made any decision yet, but he has been studying candidates' backgrounds.
