PHILADELPHIA--"I am simply thrilled that the US Senate has voted to confirm a remarkable jurist, Justice-designate Ketanji Brown Jackson, as the next justice of the United States Supreme Court. Our country will be better off with Justice Brown Jackson on the bench of the Supreme Court.
"Justice-designate Brown Jackson is immensely qualified, and her confirmation represents an historic moment. Representation matters, and diversity is strength.
"For so many Black Americans, particularly women, this day, when the first Black woman is confirmed to the Supreme Court, is especially poignant. As we celebrate today and look towards a better tomorrow, I offer my congratulations to Justice-designate Brown Jackson."
