Breyer retirement lays groundwork for historic nomination of first Black woman to Supreme Court

  • January 27, 2022

WASHINGTON – Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s expected retirement this year hands President Joe Biden a chance to make Supreme Court history by fulfilling a campaign pledge that was central to his election: naming a Black woman to the nation’s highest court for the first time. 

Biden raised the idea of choosing a Black woman during a debate before the presidential primary in South Carolina on Feb. 29, 2020. As his campaign struggled after losses in Iowa and New Hampshire, the pitch resonated with Black voters and probably contributed to his win in South Carolina – fueling his path to the nomination.
