MADISON, Wis. – Today, following President Biden nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler issued the following statement:
“Judge Jackson is a top jurist with strong experience practicing law and on the federal bench – her merit, her experience, and her unwavering dedication to the law make her an exceptionally qualified nominee. In nominating the eminently qualified Judge Jackson, President Biden has fulfilled his promise to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court of the United States.
“By confirming Judge Jackson, the U.S. Senate will deliver a superb jurist to the nation’s highest court. As the first Supreme Court Justice to have served as a public defender, Judge Jackson will offer a vital perspective to the Supreme Court and stand up for the law and Constitution—not a conservative political agenda—on the issues that matter most to Wisconsinites, from voting rights to health care.
“Today, President Biden made history with his choice of nominee. Soon, Judge Jackson will be making history as one of our nation’s great Supreme Court Justices.”
