Monday, February 28th at 2:00 p.m. ET
Join the RNLA for a special webinar discussing President Joe Biden's nominee to replace Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court, D.C. Circuit Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Jackson also previously served as a judge for the U.S. District Court for D.C. By choosing Brown Jackson to fill the Breyer vacancy, President Biden has chosen not to nominate someone who he interviewed that has bipartisan support, namely South Carolina U.S. District Court Judge Michelle Childs. He chose the candidate most supported by liberal “dark money” groups such as Demand Justice.
