Connecticut Democratic Party Statement on Historic Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court

Today, the Connecticut Democratic Party issued the following statement after Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed by a bipartisan U.S. Senate vote to the Supreme Court: 

“Judge Jackson is the daughter of public school teachers, has served as an accomplished lawyer and public defender, a distinguished federal judge, and now, she will continue making history as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

Today’s bipartisan Senate vote not only adds a brilliant legal mind with the utmost character, integrity, and understanding of the law to our nation’s highest court, but makes the Supreme Court better reflect the diversity of the nation. The Connecticut Democratic Party commends Senator Richard Blumenthal for his work on the Judiciary Committee affirming Judge Jackson’s unequivocal qualifications and Senator Cristopher Murphy for his vote to confirm Judge Jackson’s historic nomination.”
