Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced the Senate will vote to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, Oct. 26.
“We will be voting to confirm Justice-to-be Barrett next Monday and I think that will be another signature accomplishment in our effort to put on the courts, the federal courts, men and women who believe in a quaint notion that the job of a judge is to actually follow the law,” McConnell said, Fox News reported.
“Judge Amy Coney Barrett demonstrated that she has the deep legal expertise, dispassionate judicial temperament, and sheer intellectual horsepower that the American people deserve to have on their Supreme Court,” McConnell added. “I look forward to the Judiciary Committee’s vote on Thursday. The full Senate will turn to Judge Barrett’s nomination as soon as it comes out of committee. I’ll be proud to vote to confirm this exceptional jurist.”
The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on Thursday afternoon to proceed with Barrett’s confirmation to the Senate floor for a full vote.
