(FOX NEWS) – The White House celebrated the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court from the Rose Garden Friday, saying she will “inspire generations of leaders” for years to come, with President Biden praising Republican senators who set aside “partisanship” to vote in favor of his nominee.
Jackson’s family, the president and first lady, and vice president and second gentleman attended the Rose Garden ceremony Friday, along with a number of Biden cabinet secretaries, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Marcia Fudge, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona and more.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Judiciary Chairman Dick Durbin, and a number of other Democratic senators were in attendance, including Sens. John Hickenlooper, Patrick Leahy, Ed Markey, Jon Ossoff, Sheldon Whitehouse, Chris Coons, Chris Van Hollen, and Mazie Hirono. More than a dozen House Democratic lawmakers attended as well.
“The first really smart decision I made in this administration,” Biden said Friday. “This is not only a sunny day. I mean this from the bottom of my heart. This is going to let so much shine, sun shine on so many young women. So many young black women, so many minorities.”
The president said that this is “a moment of real change in American history.”
