Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced on Thursday that he will oppose Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
“I went into the Senate process with an open mind, but after studying the nominee’s record and watching her performance this week, I cannot and will not support Judge Jackson for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court,” McConnell said.
Senator McConnell slammed the liberal groups that have supported Jackson, and he criticized her for refusing to take a position on the size of the nine-member court, along with her record on both the federal district court and U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
“Judge Jackson was the court-packers’ pick, and she testified like it,” McConnell said.
I went into the Senate’s consideration of Judge Jackson’s nomination with an open mind.
But after studying the nominee’s record and watching her performance this week, I cannot and will not support Judge Jackson for a lifetime appointment to our highest Court.

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer if confirmed, and her appointment will not alter the court’s ideological divide.
