On Monday, April 4, Sen. Tim Kaine met with President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who would be the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court if confirmed.
On Monday, Virginia’s U.S. Senators meet separately with President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
“I’m really excited to meet the Judge. I have voted for her twice, but a Supreme Court matter is different than any other, and it’s the most serious of any of the nominations that we vote for,” said Kaine. “What a wonderful opportunity to have a great discussion, and I’m really looking forward to it.”
U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-VA) said he intends to support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
“Judge Jackson is a trailblazer and a highly-qualified jurist. Her wide-ranging endorsements – from conservative jurists, civil rights organizations, law enforcement groups, and through her previous bipartisan Senate confirmations – speak to her sterling credentials,” Warner said. “Her confirmation would also take a long overdue step toward making the composition of the Supreme Court better reflect the people it represents by finally including a Black woman.”
