Oklahoma Democratic Party Statement on Historic Confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court
OKLAHOMA CITY—APRIL 7, 2022 – Today, the Oklahoma Democratic Party issued the following statement after judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed by a bipartisan U.S. Senate vote to the Supreme Court.
“Judge Jackson, the daughter of public school teachers, has served as an accomplished lawyer and public defender, a distinguished federal judge, and now, will be a historic member of the Supreme Court,” commented Alicia Andrews, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair.
“Today’s bipartisan Senate vote not only adds a brilliant legal mind with the utmost character, integrity, and understanding of the law to our nation’s highest court, but will also make the Supreme Court better reflect the diversity of Oklahoma and our nation. Despite Judge Jackson’s unimpeachable credentials, Inhofe and Lankford again brought shame on Oklahoma as they chose to vote against confirming a highly qualified, historic nominee,” Andrews concluded.
