The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court next Thursday, aka October 22nd. Democrats tried to slow down the process during the fourth day of Barrett's confirmation hearing.
Connecticut Democrat Richard Blumenthal called it a rushed process that is a sham. Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar said the winner of next month's presidential election should select the next Supreme Court justice. South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham defended the process and called Barrett highly qualified.
The reality for Democrats? They simply don’t have the votes in the Republican-led Senate to block Barrett's confirmation. Republicans aim to get it done before the election on November 3rd.
