The Senate has set the date for the confirmation vote on Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
According to The Hill:
The Senate will vote Monday on confirming President Trump‘s nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, to the Supreme Court.
“With regard to the Supreme Court justice … we’ll be voting to confirm justice-to-be Barrett next Monday,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said during a weekly press conference, confirming the timing of a final vote on her nomination.
“I think that will be another signature accomplishment in our effort to put on the courts, the federal courts, men and women that believe in the quaint notion that maybe the job of a judge is to actually follow the law,” McConnell added.
Top GOP senators and aides had previously indicated to The Hill that they were likely to set up the final vote for Monday, allowing vulnerable GOP senators to spend the final week before the election back on the campaign trail.
The procedural vote will occur on Sunday which will give Senators 30 hours to debate the confirmation.
