President Obama will announce his pick to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Wednesday morning.

Obama will speak in the Rose Garden at 11 a.m., the White House said in an email.

Obama has narrowed his list to two people and will nominate either Judge Sri Srinivasan or Judge Merrick Garland, Reuters reported late Tuesday.

Last week, Obama reportedly chose his top three candidates to fill the Supreme Court’s vacancy: Garland, the chief judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia; Srinivasan, of the same court; and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Paul Watford.
