US lawmakers vote on Amy Coney Barrett’s SCOTUS nomination

The United States Senate is set to vote on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, capping off a contentious confirmation process that has further inflamed partisan tensions heading into the presidential election.

Barrett, a 48-year-old conservative appellate court judge, is President Donald Trump’s third nominee to the high court in four years. If confirmed, she would cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court and would likely shift its ideological balance for years to come.

The vote comes just over a week after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal icon, who passed away at the age of 87 after 27 years on the court. Her death set off a furious battle over her replacement, with Trump and Senate Republicans vowing to quickly confirm a nominee before the November 3 election and Democrats accusing them of rushing the process.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to advance Barrett’s nomination to the full Senate on Thursday, with all Democrats voting against her.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he has the votes to confirm Barrett, and it’s expected she will be sworn in before Election Day.
