It looks like Judge Amy Coney Barret is going to be confirmed to the United States Supreme Court.
The Democrats did the best they could to turn the public against her and the proceedings but they failed. Barrett is even rising in opinion polls.
Now Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans have the votes they need to confirm her.
Mitch McConnell: GOP Has Votes to Confirm Amy Coney Barrett to Supreme Court
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday affirmed that he has secured enough votes to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“We have the votes,” McConnell told reporters in Kentucky after taking part in early voting for the presidential election, according to Bloomberg News. The Kentucky Republican predicted that the Senate Judiciary Committee will approve Barrett’s nomination on October 22, clearing the way for a full Senate vote the following day.
Earlier Thursday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) officially scheduled a panel vote for Barrett’s nomination for next Thursday at 1:00 P.M.
“It’s clear to me from reading in the paper is that what’s going to happen is we’re going to be denied the ability to operate as normal… I know what awaits us,” Graham stated.
This is going to happen before the election.
