Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer Retiring, What’s Next? | TMZ Now
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring after more than 2 decades on the bench, and the battle over his replacement will be fascinating.
The timing of Breyer’s retirement is interesting … the midterm elections are looming and there’s a possibility the Democrats could lose their slim majority in the Senate, which would make it nearly impossible for President Joe Biden’s pick for a new Justice to get confirmed.
Republicans have made clear their intentions to block any potential candidate put forward by President Biden, if the GOP wins back a Senate majority in the midterms.
Right now the Democrats hold the majority in the House and Senate, so look for President Biden to push through a replacement for Justice Breyer rather quickly.
