She's already been confirmed by the senate for district judge, so just save time and confirm her for the high court.
Interesting that Jackson was also on Obama's short list when he nominated Garland and Paul Ryan defended her. She is related to him by marriage. Ryan was in the House not the Senate so he wouldn't have voted

This Potential Supreme Court Nominee Is Family to House Speaker Paul Ryan
The fight over President Obama’s eventual Supreme Court nominee could get personal for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
One of names being floated as a possible pick is someone who Ryan calls family: D.C. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Connected by marriage, Jackson’s husband, Patrick Jackson, is the twin brother of Ryan’s brother-in-law William Jackson.
Ryan even testified on Brown’s behalf when she was nominated to the district court in 2012, offering his “unequivocal” endorsement of her qualifications in recommending her for the bench.
“Our politics may differ, but my praise for Ketanji’s intellect, for her character, for her integrity is unequivocal,”
Ryan said at her December 2012 nomination hearing. “She’s an amazing person, and I favorably recommend her consideration.”
“We’re family, by marriage,” Ryan explained in the 2012 hearing. “Her brother and sister-in-law, who are my brother and sister-in-law, William and Dana Jackson, are here with us as well today.”
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is related by marriage.
