NHDP Statement on President Biden's Nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for SCOTUS

CONCORD, NH – In response to President Biden’s announcement of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the first Black woman to be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley has released the following statement:


“President Biden pledged to nominate an exceptionally qualified candidate for the highest court in the land, and he delivered. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is immensely qualified to succeed Justice Stephen Breyer, and she will make history not only as the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, but the first public defender to ever serve on the court. I want to extend my deepest congratulations to Judge Jackson on her nomination to be our next Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.”


“Judge Jackson has shown a deep respect and passion for the law and for our country and has earned her place on the bench. She has been confirmed three times by the U.S. Senate on bipartisan votes for her previous positions, and I see no reason to not expect that she will be treated the same during this process. I know that Judge Jackson will use her position on our nation’s highest court to defend the Constitution and the rule of law, and I look forward to her swift confirmation by the Senate.”
