WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, a member of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the statement below after meeting with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court.

“President Biden’s nomination of Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court is historic. And with nine years of judicial experience – more than four other justices currently on the Court prior to their confirmations – Judge Jackson has proven that she is an excellent jurist who understands the experiences of everyday Americans. 

“I joined both Democrats and Republicans in supporting her three previous nominations, and I look forward to the American people getting to know Judge Jackson during her confirmation hearings. Following our meeting, I am confident they will see that her qualifications, character, fidelity to the Constitution, and respect for the rule of law make her deserving of support on both sides of the aisle.”
