Wendy Vitter, President Trump's nominee to serve as a federal judge for the Eastern District of Louisiana, on Wednesday declined to say whether she believes a Supreme Court ruling ending school segregation was "correctly decided."

As Vitter testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) asked her if she thought Brown v. Board of Education "was correctly decided." 

"Senator, I don't mean to be coy, but I think I get into a difficult area when I start commenting on Supreme Court decisions - which are correctly decided and which I may disagree with," Vitter responded.

"Again, my personal, political or religious views I would set aside. That is Supreme Court precedent. It is binding. If I were honored to be confirmed, I would be bound by it and of course I would uphold it."
