WisDems Statement on Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Being Sworn in to the Supreme Court

MADISON, WIS. – Today, in celebration of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson being sworn in to the Supreme Court, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement: 

“Justice Jackson is one of our nation’s finest legal minds, with deep and varied experience and an unwavering dedication to the rule of law – a much-needed addition to our nation’s highest court. Today’s historic swearing in moves the Supreme Court a step forward in reflecting the diversity of our country.

“This moment was made possible by every Wisconsin voter who elected President Biden and Senator Tammy Baldwin. As the Court’s far-right majority imposes their extremist politics from the bench, it’s critical that we have justices like Justice Jackson who will stand up for the law and the Constitution of the United States — not an ultra-MAGA political agenda.”
