WASHINGTON — Sen. Mitt Romney announced he would be supporting Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation to be an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, while Sen. Mike Lee announced he would vote against it.
Romney released the following statement Monday:
“After reviewing Judge Jackson’s record and testimony, I have concluded that she is a well-qualified jurist and a person of honor. While I do not expect to agree with every decision she may make on the Court, I believe that she more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity. I congratulate Judge Jackson on her expected confirmation and look forward to her continued service to our nation.”

Romney released the information just hours following Lee’s announcement that he would not be voting in support of Jackson’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
They told us to look at judicial philosophy, but Judge Jackson said she doesn’t have one. They leaned on her record, but what we have of her record is troubling. They said to look at her answers, but she didn’t answer basic questions & endorsed judicial activism. I will vote no. pic.twitter.com/iVmZlUSbbr

Lee stated that “she didn’t answer basic questions and endorsed judicial activism. I will vote no.”
