HELENA, Mont. – Today, Senator Jon Tester announced his intention to vote in favor of Joe Biden’s far left Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson. Tester, along with his boss Chuck Schumer, are forging ahead with her nomination despite numerous serious concerns raised by Republican Senators, which should concern all Montanans. In response to Tester’s announcement, Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt released the following statement:
“Jon Tester’s decision to support Joe Biden’s radical Supreme Court nominee is as reckless, but unsurprising,” Chairman Kaltschmidt said. “Judge Jackson has a long and disturbing record that includes being lenient with child predators, defending terrorists in her private practice, and voting to strike down President Trump’s executive orders that kept Americans safe. Jackson’s confirmation hearing did nothing to ease those concerns and she even refused to answer the most basic questions – including being unwilling to define the word “woman”. Judge Jackson has no business sitting on the U.S. Supreme Court and Senator Tester’s support for her is just one more example of how he has left Montana behind for D.C. special interests.”
Judge Brown Jackson has also previously expressed support for Critical Race Theory and allowed criminals in possession of child porn back onto the streets earlier than the sentencing guidelines. Jackson has been an activist judge that legislates from the bench for her entire career and there is no evidence to suggest that would change if she is confirmed to the Supreme Court.
