WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement on President Biden’s nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court:

“Judge Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court is historic. There have been 115 Supreme Court Justices and if confirmed, she will be the first Black woman. She is a jurist who understands the experiences of everyday Americans and she will bring her unique perspective to the highest court in the land. 

“I’ve been proud to support her three previous nominations, and I look forward to meeting with her and working with my Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the Senate confirmation hearing.”
