President Obama to name SCOTUS pick at 11am; coverage on WBIN-TV, 99.1 FM, and NH1.com
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says he'll announce his Supreme Court nominee in a Rose Garden ceremony at approximately 11 a.m. Wednesday morning, and NH1 News will have live coverage.
He's not naming the pick before the announcement, but the subject line of an email to supporters says: "I've made my decision."
There's a vacancy on the nine-member court due to the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.
Sources have told The Associated Press that Obama has narrowed the list to three appeals court judges: Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the appeals courts in Washington, D.C.; Sri Srinivasan, a judge on that court; and Paul Watford of the appeals courts based in San Francisco.
Republicans who run the Senate have said they won't consider an Obama nominee in an election year and want the next president to make that choice.
NH1 News will have coverage of the announcement on WBIN-TV, 99.1 NH1 News, and NH1.com.
