Manchin Says He Will Vote To Confirm Jackson For Supreme Court

Sen. Joe Manchin

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) issued a statement on Friday morning announcing that he will support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court. His vote is likely to assure Jackson’s confirmation, even if no Senate Republicans support her.

“I am confident Judge Jackson is supremely qualified and has the disposition necessary to serve as our nation’s next Supreme Court Justice,” said Manchin.
