Sources say Obama to nominate Jewish judge to Supreme Court

Congressional sources tell AP Obama will nominate Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court.

Politico also reports that Obama will pick Garland. Reuters earlier reported that Obama would tap Sri Srinivasan.

Garland, the chief judge of the appeals courts in Washington, would become fourth Jewish judge on the nine-person bench.

Obama is slated to announce his pick in about an hour.
