WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement on President Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court:

“I congratulate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on her nomination to the Supreme Court and look forward to meeting with her. I will carefully and thoughtfully evaluate Judge Jackson’s record, including reviewing her decisions and all her relevant professional records and documents.

“I voted against Judge Jackson’s confirmation to the Circuit Court because I had serious concerns she would legislate from the bench instead of following the Constitution and federal law as written. The fact that Judge Jackson was the strongly preferred nominee of far-left special interest groups is also a cause of concern, requiring an in-depth review of her full record.

“During this process, I will treat Judge Jackson with fairness and civility, a basic standard of decency that many Democrats appallingly refused to extend to the Supreme Court nominees under the previous administration.”
