Wicker comments on Supreme Court nomination

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Friday released the following statement on President Joe Biden’s selection of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“The confirmation of a justice to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court is a solemn responsibility that deserves the full engagement of the U.S. Senate.

“Less than a year ago, I voted against Judge Jackson’s confirmation to the D.C. Circuit because of her left-wing, activist judicial philosophy. That said, I expect the Senate will accord her all the courtesy and respect that was not shown to Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Miguel Estrada, and Janice Rogers Brown.

“I look forward to meeting with Judge Jackson in the near future.”

Jackson is currently a federal appeals court judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Biden had earlier promised to nominate an African-American woman to the Supreme Court if and when given the opportunity.
