Senators Make Opening Statements As SCOTUS Nominee Jackson’s Hearing Marathon Begins

After weeks of traipsing to various Senate offices to meet lawmakers one-on-one, Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday for the start of a multi-day hearing marathon.

Day one should be relatively low-key — committee members, individuals introducing Jackson and Jackson herself will deliver opening statements. The speeches may provide a roadmap of where lawmakers intend to go in the next couple days of questioning.
