Larry Sabato Discusses Trump's Upcoming Supreme Court Nomination Announcement
The University of Virginia’s Center for Politics is weighing in on what is expected to be a big announcement on who the president will nominate to be the next Supreme Court justice.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The University of Virginia’s Center for Politics is weighing in on what is expected to be a big announcement on who the president will nominate to be the next Supreme Court justice.
President Trump is expected to make an announcement around 9 p.m. on Monday, July 9, on who he wants to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who recently announced his retirement.
Larry Sabato, the director of the Center for Politics, says it's not unprecedented for Donald Trump to have two high court picks though he's only been in office for a short time.
Sabato adds any choice from the president’s current list will make the Supreme Court more conservative.
"The odds are tremendous now that it will no longer be a swing seat,” says Sabato. “It will be the newest member of a five-member conservative majority on the Supreme Court, at least for social issues and the kind of predictable controversies that come before every court on the social and moral side."
You can watch starting at 9 p.m. on NBC29 to see who President Trump nominates.
