Attorney General Loretta Lynch says no to the Supreme Court.
FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:
The Justice Department is confirming that Attorney General Loretta Lynch has asked the President not to consider her for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Lynch had been among the names floated as potential nominees to take the spot of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, but she bowed out of consideration citing urgent issues before the Department of Justice.
Senate Republicans have vowed to block anyone President Obama chooses, saying the next president should choose the next Supreme Court Justice.
The President has said he'll name his nominee in a matter of weeks.
At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
