My support rests on Judge Jackson’s qualifications, which no one questions; her demonstrated judicial independence; her demeanor and temperament; and the important perspective she would bring to the court as a replacement for Justice Breyer,” said Murkowski in a statement, 引用 “multiple in-depth conversationsand a review of the judge’s record.
她补充说: “It also rests on my rejection of the corrosive politicization of the review process for Supreme Court nominees, 哪一个, on both sides of the aisle, is growing worse and more detached from reality by the year.
    罗姆尼, 与此同时, 发推文, “After reviewing Judge Jackson’s record and testimony, I have concluded that she is a well-qualified jurist and a person of honor. While I do not expect to agree with every decision she may make on the Court, I believe that she more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity. I congratulate Judge Jackson on her expected confirmation and look forward to her continued service to our nation.”升
      Though the vast majority of Senate Republicans are expected to vote to oppose Jackson, she has deepened her support among the GOP with the two lawmakers joining Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in her pledge last month to support Jackson’s confirmation.
