Vice President Kamala Harris said it’s “an extraordinary day,” after she left the Senate floor where she presided over the historic confirmation vote of Ketanji Brown Jackson to the US Supreme Court.
“It’s an extraordinary day and I think it’s a very important statement today about who we are as a nation that we put Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on the highest court of our land. So let us all I think rejoice,” she said.
Asked how she’s feels after such a historic vote, she said she’s “overjoyed” and “deeply moved.”
