Republican Senator Blocks the Nomination of the First Native American to Serve as Federal Judge in Montana

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), a member of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, has blocked President Joe Biden's federal district judge nominee, Danna Jackson, a Native American woman, from consideration by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Jackson is a tribal attorney for the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

A spokesperson for the senator said Daines decided not to return a "blue slip" that would have allowed Jackson to be considered.
