On Wednesday, Judge Ketanji Brown-Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court moved forward with the conclusion of her confirmation hearings, which featured tense exchanges over her sentencing record and the recognition of the historic nature of the proceedings. On Friday, House Republicans wrapped up their annual retreat in Florida, during which they sought to project unity and cobble together key parts of their proposed agenda in a bid to retake the House majority in 2022 midterm elections.

Public Strategies’ Mark Alderman, Towner French, Kaitlyn Martin, and Tristan Breaux debate key moments and takeaways from the Senate confirmation hearings and the House GOP retreat.
