Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff has said he expects a Supreme Court nomination will come very soon. On Sunday, Marc Short highlighted the history of Supreme Court nominations.

He believes the President will honor his obligation to the American people and nominate someone soon.

According to Short, President Trump has interviewed plenty of candidates for the position and recently narrowed his list for the position down to a handful of names.

“The President is going to stick with his obligation to do that,” stated Short. “He looks forward to making a nominee that, I think, the American people will be proud of.”

The chief of staff went on to say it is the obligation of the Senate to approve the nomination in whatever timeline they believe in.

Historically, he added the party in power has gone on to confirm the nominees and fulfill their obligation to the American people.
