President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the SCOTUS
This nomination comes as Democrats fight to delay or keep the nomination from moving forward with very low chances.
TOLEDO, Ohio — President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett for a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States.
Barrett is expected to get confirmation from the Senate, ultimately replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
During her brief remarks, Barrett said:
“If the Senate does me the honor of confirming me, I pledge to discharge the responsibilities of this job to the very best of my ability.”
The president said that his nominee would be a woman with conservative values. And Barrett is that woman who’s anti-abortion and pro-gun, writing in an opinion, non-violent offenders should not lose their constitutional right to firearms possession.
The Senate is expected to confirm Barrett in two weeks.
