MADISON – Today, the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and the first Black woman to serve on the highest court in the land. Judge Jackson brings nearly a decade of judicial experience, bipartisan support, and a passion for justice to this post. State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski applauded this confirmation.
“With reproductive rights, voting rights, LGBTQ+ rights, civil rights, and so much more at risk right now, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to be our next Supreme Court justice has never been more important,” said Sarah Godlewski. “This confirmation vote was only possible because Democrats flipped the Senate, and it’s a powerful reminder of the stakes of defending and expanding our majority in November—starting right here in Wisconsin by defeating Ron Johnson.”
