WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clyburn issued the following statement today in response to President Biden announcing his nomination of D.C. Circuit Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to fill Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s seat on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“Ketanji Brown Jackson, an outstanding judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, has been nominated by President Joe Biden to become the first African American woman on the U.S. Supreme Court. This is a glass ceiling that took far too long to shatter, and I commend President Biden for taking a sledgehammer to it. I congratulate Judge Jackson and offer my full support during the confirmation process and beyond. 

“It is two years to the day of President Biden’s pledge that, if given the opportunity, he would name a Black woman to the Supreme Court. During the interim, there were many speculations and suggestions about possible candidates, and I was pleased to advance the name of South Carolina Federal District Judge J. Michelle Childs and advocate for her nomination. 

“Although not the finalist, Judge Childs’ inclusion among the three that were interviewed continues her record of remarkable contributions to making this country’s greatness accessible and affordable for all.  And, she continues to make all South Carolinians proud.”
