On the first day of the Senate confirmation hearings for President Joe Biden’s SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized the Democratic Party for making the Supreme Court nomination about race.
Jackson has been at the center of controversy since Biden made good on his promise to nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. Republican lawmakers, like Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), have scrutinized Jackson’s record as a judge who has lambasted the judicial system’s “unfair” treatment of convicted sex offenders.
