Moderate Democrat Senator Joe Manchin confirmed this week that he will support Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to join the United States Supreme Court, a move that all but assures her confirmation.

“After meeting with her, considering her record, and closely monitoring her testimony and questioning before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week, I have determined I intend to vote for her nomination to serve on the Supreme Court,” Manchin, D-W.Va., said in a Friday statement.

“Her wide array of experiences in varying sectors of our judicial system have provided Judge Jackson a unique perspective that will serve her well on our nation’s highest court,” Manchin also said. “During our meeting, she was warm and gracious. On top of her impressive resume, she has the temperament to make an exceptional jurist.”

“She is an inspiration to all of us, to our families, those of us that have daughters, and  granddaughters both White and Black,” Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said of the potential Justice Wednesday. “She will be confirmed. She’ll be a star of the Supreme Court, and I, for one, will proudly cast my vote for her.”
