Rounds Meets with SCOTUS Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson

WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) released the following statement after meeting with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden’s nominee to the United States Supreme Court:

“I appreciated the opportunity to visit with Judge Jackson today. I came into our meeting with an open mind and take seriously the Senate’s responsibility to provide ‘advice and consent’ on Judge Jackson’s lifetime nomination. In the days ahead of her final confirmation vote, I will continue to examine her judicial record and qualifications as a judge, before announcing how I intend to vote on her nomination.

“Ultimately, I believe it’s critical anyone serving on the Supreme Court is fair-minded, and will interpret the Constitution and statutes as written to uphold the rule of law. This requires Supreme Court justices to exercise judicial restraint while making decisions on issues we as Americans hold most dear: life, liberty and property.”
