Tester Announces Support for the Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson


U.S. Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after meeting with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson yesterday regarding her nomination to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

"During our meeting, I pushed Judge Jackson on her views regarding Montanan's Second Amendment rights, antitrust enforcement as it relates to consolidation in the agriculture industry, and whether corporations should be considered people under the law. She demonstrated a deep commitment to the rule of law, defending Montanans' constitutional rights, and a dedication to deciding cases based on the facts, not on any personal opinion or ideology. Following our meeting and after reviewing the testimony from her hearing, it is clear that Judge Jackson is a deeply qualified jurist who will serve honorably and impartially on the Supreme Court, and I look forward to voting for her confirmation."

Tester questioned Judge Jackson on a number of topics of concern to Montanans, including her commitment to upholding the Second Amendment, and her views on corporate agriculture consolidation, country of origin labeling for American beef, dark money in politics, public safety and Tribal sovereignty.

Judge Jackson has previously been confirmed by the Senate three times, each by bipartisan margins and twice unanimously. She has received the endorsements of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the Fraternal order of Police, and 83 Republican and Democratic former attorneys general.
