Senate on Track to Confirm Far-Right Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Oct. 26

HeadlineOct 16, 2020

Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Amy Coney Barrett ended Thursday with the right-wing judge’s confirmation looking all but assured, after four rushed days of questioning in which Barrett refused to state her position on abortion rights, gay marriage, the Affordable Care Act, voting rights, climate change, family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, and even if President Trump could delay the election. The Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Barrett’s nomination on October 22. The full Senate could vote on whether or not to confirm Barrett as early as October 26 — just over a week before Election Day. We’ll have more on the story after headlines.
