Committee votes on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination 

The Senate Judiciary Committee will convene Monday to vote on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historic nomination to the Supreme Court. Before the vote, each of the 11 Democrats and Republicans on the committee will have unlimited time to offer their recommendations. Although some Republicans have announced their plans to vote against her, Jackson is all but ensured to be confirmed as the first Black woman to serve on the high court. GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine announced last week she would back Jackson, guaranteeing the nominee bipartisan support.  And if the Senate chamber splits 50-50, Vice President Kamala Harris would break the tie and provide Jackson with the deciding vote.
