Ketanji Brown Jackson rushed through Supreme Court confirmation in 53-47 vote

April 7, 2022, Fairfax—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next Supreme Court Justice by a 53 to 47 vote:

“We are disappointed that the U.S. Senate chose to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next Supreme Court Justice. Jackson will join the Court upon the retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer at the beginning of July. It is disturbing that the Senate did not compel the Biden administration to provide tens of thousands of relevant records prior to confirmation given there was zero time pressure to act.

“Notably Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia joined Republican Senators Susan Collins, Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski in voting for a nominee who has been characterized as the most radical nominee in American history and who Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said “the Biden Administration let the radicals run the show” in choosing. For the sake of America, I hope the radical left is ultimately as disappointed in Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson as conservatives are with Chief Justice John Roberts.”
