BOISE – Idaho Democratic Party Chair Lauren Necochea released the following statement recognizing the historic confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court: 

“Today we celebrate the bipartisan confirmation of Judge Kentaji Brown Jackson, a brilliant legal mind with the utmost character, as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. We recognize the making of history as Judge Jackson, the daughter of public school teachers,  becomes the first black woman and first public defender to sit on our nation’s highest court.

It is very disappointing that, despite Judge Jackson’s unimpeachable credentials, Senators Crapo and Risch chose to vote against her confirmation.”
