Mark Warner announces intention to support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson
U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) released a statement Monday on his intent to support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
“Judge Jackson is a trailblazer and a highly qualified jurist. Her wide-ranging endorsements – from conservative jurists, civil rights organizations, law enforcement groups, and through her previous bipartisan Senate confirmations – speak to her sterling credentials.
“During her hearing and our meeting, Judge Jackson demonstrated a strong command of constitutional law, a patient and reasoned temperament, and a warm devotion to her family and to the United States. Her confirmation would also take a long overdue step toward making the composition of the Supreme Court better reflect the people it represents by finally including a Black woman.
“After careful consideration, I believe Judge Jackson embodies the highest intellect, impartiality, and honesty, and I look forward to casting my vote in support of her nomination.”
