April 7, 2022

WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) today released the following statement, announcing his opposition to the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“While I found Judge Jackson to be deeply intelligent and committed to serving her country, I do not believe her judicial philosophy and method of constitutional interpretation align with what the Constitution demands and what Tennesseans rightly expect from a Supreme Court justice. Therefore, I am not able to support her lifetime appointment to the Court.”
