U.S. Senator Roy Blunt announced his intent on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, to vote against appointing Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Roy Blunt. His rejection came after nearly 30 seconds of praising her character, personality, and experience. It mirrored what Missouri’s junior senator, Josh Hawley, told Missourinet.
