UTAH DEMOCRATS STATEMENT ON HISTORIC CONFIRMATION OF JUDGE KETANJI BROWN JACKSON TO THE SUPREME COURT

 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, April 7, 2022 Today, the Utah Democratic Party issued the following statement after judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed by a bipartisan U.S. Senate vote to the Supreme Court.

“Judge Jackson is the daughter of public school teachers, has served as an accomplished lawyer and public defender, a distinguished federal judge, and now, will be a historic member of the Supreme Court. Today’s bipartisan Senate vote not only adds a brilliant legal mind with the utmost character, integrity, and understanding of the law to our nation’s highest court, but will also make the Supreme Court better reflect the diversity of Utah and our nation. Despite Judge Jackson’s unimpeachable credentials, Senator Mike Lee chose to vote against confirming a highly qualified, historic nominee, and Utah voters will not forget it.”

The Utah Democratic Party is the face and voice of Democrats in the State of Utah. We believe that Utahns deserve strong, competent leadership that puts the people and democracy first.
