Mitt Romney Panics GOP

U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT)

( – Recently, Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) revealed that he remains undecided on how he will vote on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

Speaking to anchor Kasie Hunt, Romney said he was in the midst of a “deeper dive” than when he previously voted against Jackson’s Court of Appeals nomination last year.

The Utah Republican noted that “in this case,” Jackson’s “gone into much more depth talking about her judicial philosophy than she had before, and we’re, of course, looking at her judicial record as a district judge and as an appellate judge in far more depth than we had before.”

Romney continued that after completing his analysis, he’d “reach a decision,” adding that he has “not reached [a] decision.”

In the clip, the Republican Senator criticized fellow Republican lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee, calling out their conduct as an attempt to prepare “for their presidential campaign” and “doing the things you have to do to get on TV.”

The committee will be voting on Jackson’s nomination on Monday (April 4), as many expect the vote to be divided along party lines. If the vote ends in a tie, it will be transferred to the full chamber.

Last year, Jackson received 53 votes from the full chamber, which confirmed her nomination to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Her confirmation was made possible by three Republican Senators who voted in favor of Jackson. Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina with the three Republicans who cast their ballots in favor of Jackson; since then, Graham has soured toward Graham.
