What happens now? President Trump made history by nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. That is fantastic news. But now the scene shifts to the United States Senate. The rules of the Senate call for hearings before the Judiciary Committee. Watch for those in coming weeks—and expect a political blockbuster.
Then, the committee votes to move the nomination to the floor of the Senate. That, too, will be a fight. Then Senate debate and the big event—the vote. It will be a battle at every turn, and Democrats will try their best to slow it down. Republicans must keep up the heat, and see it through to the end—the future of the Supreme Court is at stake.
We need Judge Barrett on the Supreme Court now.
