Tal Axelrod writes for The Hill:
A slate of progressive groups on Friday pressed President-elect Joe Biden to tap the nation’s first Black female solicitor general, saying that doing so would be a sign of his commitment to forming a diverse administration.
Demand Justice, a top progressive judicial group, was joined by Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Demos, Indivisible, Just Democracy, People’s Parity Project, and She Will Rise in recommending a number of Black women for the Justice Department’s No. 4 post.
The groups noted that Biden has already vowed to tap a Black woman to the Supreme Court, but that while it is unclear when a vacancy on the high court will arise, he could make history with his nominee for solicitor general.
