South Dakota Democratic Party Statement on Historic Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court
Today, South Dakota Democratic Party Chair Randy Seiler 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 South Dakota and our nation. Despite Judge Jackson’s unimpeachable credentials, Senator Thune and Senator Rounds chose to vote against confirming a highly qualified, historic nominee and voters in South Dakota will not forget it.”
