WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump announced his nominee to fill the seat of retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Monday night.
Federal appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaugh is Trump’s pick to replace Kennedy in the Supreme Court.
Trump spent the weekend mulling over the top contenders, and tweeted on Sunday that an “exceptional person will be chosen!”
Looking forward to announcing my final decision on the United States Supreme Court Justice at 9:00pmE tomorrow night at the @WhiteHouse. An exceptional person will be chosen!
