ACB's SC Confirmation Vote May Face Dem Boycott


Amy Coney Barrett’s Nomination Advanced by Senate Judiciary Committee Move comes over objection of Democrats to Republicans’ quickly filling Supreme Court opening WASHINGTON—The Senate Judiciary Committee advanced Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court as Republicans unanimously voted to recommend that the full Senate confirm her. The tally was 12-0. All 10 Democrats on the panel declined to appear at the proceedings to protest the Republican plan to fill the position just ahead of a presidential election. The committee vote clears the way for a full Senate vote that is expected on Monday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) is expected to take the rare step of keeping the chamber in session over the weekend in order to limit the opportunities for Democrats to delay the vote. If confirmed as expected, Judge Barrett would give the Supreme Court a solid conservative majority that could affect the role of government, the rights of individuals, and the interpretation of such long-debated constitutional terms as equal protection, due process of law, and cruel and unusual punishment.
