Topic: Amy Coney Barrett
Washington, D.C. – This week, my Senate colleagues and I worked through the weekend to confirm Amy Coney Barrett. That effort came to fruition on Monday evening, when the Senate confirmed Judge Barrett to the nation’s highest court. In that moment, Barrett made history as the first mother of school-aged children to rise to the Supreme Court.
Shortly after, I headed to the White House, where Justice Clarence Thomas administered the Judicial Oath, and Judge Barrett became Justice Barrett. It was truly a monumental moment in American history.

Washington, D.C. – During her confirmation hearings, Judge Barrett demonstrated respect for the law, intelligence, good character and steady temperament. Having attended college in Tennessee and law school in Indiana, her background will strengthen the Supreme Court by making it more diverse.
