McConnell: Barrett Confirmation Vote Will Be Monday

Fox News reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said that the upper chamber of Congress will vote next Monday, Oct. 26, to confirm President Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.

The Judiciary Committee is expected to vote her out of committee on Thursday at 1 p.m. ET, as it’s customary for the committee to hold over the nomination of a Supreme Court nominee for a week. Barrett faced three days of questioning from senators on the Judiciary Committee last week.

“We will be voting to confirm Justice-to-be Barrett next Monday and I think that will be another signature accomplishment in our effort to put on the courts, the federal courts, men and women who believe in a quaint notion that the job of a judge is to actually follow the law,” McConnell said during a news conference following the weekly GOP Senate lunch.
