Conservatives have been quick to call the process unfair and slam the decision before a candidate has been named. Unsurprisingly, Ted Cruz has been one of the loudest voices of opposition. During a Tuesday appearance on CNN, Carol Moseley Braun, the first African-American female elected to the senate, ripped into the Texas senator.

It is because she will have had a series of life experiences that will inform the decisions of the Court, in the same way, hopefully, that Thurgood Marshall was able to influence the Warren Court.

And I just hope that we will continue and get a quick confirmation of one of the four that President Biden is considering.”
