Marsha Blackburn Report: Fulfilling Our Constitutional Duty

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, we honored the legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a smart, talented trailblazer who mentored women in the judiciary. She worked hard to achieve prominence on her own merit, and I thank her for her service to our country. 

Yesterday, September 26th, 2020, President Donald Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee to serve as our next Supreme Court Justice. Twenty-nine times in American history there has been a vacancy in a Presidential election year, and all twenty-nine times the President has made a nomination. My colleagues and I on the Judiciary Committee will do our due diligence in vetting Judge Amy Coney Barrett as is consistent with the Senate’s Constitutional duty to provide advice and consent to the President.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
