Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson is before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, as Democrats aim to confirm the first Black woman justice and many Republicans search for a unified message to oppose her.

Democrats have touted President Joe Biden’s pick as a qualified, boundary-breaking nominee, while Republicans have criticized her record on crime and the support she holds from left-wing groups.
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, opened the hearing by putting Jackson’s nomination in historical context, noting that of 115 Supreme Court justices, 108 have been white men.
“Not a single justice has been a black woman,” Durbin said. “You, Judge Jackson, can be the first”.
