Wicker Statement on President Biden’s Supreme Court Nomination

February 25, 2022

 WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today released the following statement on President Joseph R. Biden’s selection of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“The confirmation of a justice to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court is a solemn responsibility that deserves the full engagement of the U.S. Senate.

“Less than a year ago, I voted against Judge Jackson’s confirmation to the D.C. Circuit because of her left-wing, activist judicial philosophy. That said, I expect the Senate will accord her all the courtesy and respect that was not shown to Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Miguel Estrada, and Janice Rogers Brown.

“I look forward to meeting with Judge Jackson in the near future.”
