Senator Young 7-7-19U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) spoke on the Senate floor in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett this morning ahead of today’s Supreme Court confirmation vote.

“One month ago, Judge Amy Coney Barrett was selected by President Donald Trump to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Since then, Judge Barrett has more than proven her qualifications for the job. A respected federal judge, educator, and public servant, Judge Barrett has conducted herself throughout this process with poise and integrity. She has demonstrated her intellect, legal acumen, and commitment to the Constitution. She is clearly a brilliant jurist who interprets the Constitution as written and carefully weighs the facts of a given case,” said Senator Young. “Despite Senate Democrats’ repeated attempt to drag her into the political fray, Judge Barrett has proven that she will make her decisions based on the law rather than politics.”

Senator Young added, “Hoosiers are extremely proud of Judge Amy Coney Barrett and the trail she has blazed for others. She is a role model for young women everywhere, including my young daughters. I am incredibly proud that our next Supreme Court Justice will hail from America’s Heartland and the great state of Indiana. I urge my colleagues to come together and carry out the will of the American people by swiftly voting to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States.”
