Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson listens during her confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has wrapped up the second day of confirmation hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson, the federal judge whom President Biden has picked to fill Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer's seat when he retires this summer.

Rounds of questioning from lawmakers started at 9 a.m. ET and ended after 10 p.m. ET. Among the topics she was asked about: expansion of the size of the court, critical race theory, dark money and the length of sentences she has handed down in child pornography cases. The full day of questioning follows a session on Monday devoted to opening statements — from lawmakers and from Jackson.
