Breyer, a 27-year Supreme Court veteran, said Wednesday that two reasons will weigh heavily in his choice, despite being far from Washington and the strains of the recently concluded session and speculation about his impending retirement.
Liberal advocates, law professors, and some Democratic members of Congress have attempted to encourage Breyer to resign from the bench. They want Democratic President Joe Biden to be able to choose a younger leftist while the Senate, which has the constitutional “advice and consent” power, is dominated by Democrats.
As the justices issued their final judgments in the first week of July, some liberals urged Breyer to announce his resignation. However, with the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last year, Breyer has showed no inclination to quit the bench, especially now that he has more influence as the ranking justice on the left.
