Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced on Monday that they will vote to confirm President Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

The senators’ announcements came just hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee tied by partisan lines, 11-11, to advance Jackson’s nomination. Senate Democrat Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) moved to discharge Jackson’s nomination to the full Senate after the deadlock vote.

Murkowski cited Jackson’s “demeanor and temperament” as reasons why she would vote to confirm her. “After multiple in-depth conversations with Judge Jackson and deliberative review of her record and recent hearings, I will support her historic nomination to be an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court,” Murkowski said.

Murkowski voted against Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court in 2018.
