Sen. Chuck Grassley a ‘no’ on Ketanji Brown Jackson
He cites philosophical differences with Biden’s Supreme Court pick
Sen. Chuck Grassley is a “no” vote on confirming Ketanji Brown Jackson as a Supreme Court justice.
Grassley, an Iowa Republican, announced his decision Monday morning at a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Having carefully studied her record, unfortunately, I think she and I have fundamentally different views on the role judges should play in our system of government. Because of those disagreements, I can’t support her nomination,” said Grassley, the ranking Republican on the committee.
Jackson appears to be on track in the 50-50 split Senate for confirmation as President Joe Biden’s first Supreme Court appointment. One Republican, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, has announced she will vote for Jackson’s confirmation.
