Despite Democrats Speaking All Night On Senate Floor, ACB On Path To Supreme Court With Monday Night Vote

Senate floor Democrats are fighting the decision to nominate Amy Coney Barrett for the Supreme Court, according to Fox News.

“Senate Democrats are taking over the floor all night to fight this sham process by Senate Republicans,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said.

“We will not stop fighting.”

On the subject of Amy Coney Barret being confirmed for a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “This is something to really be proud of and feel good about. We made an important contribution to the future of this country.”

“A lot of what we’ve done over the last four years will be undone sooner or later by the next election … They won’t be able to do much about this for a long time to come.”

“Fortunately for Judge Barrett and our nation, history will remember what is already clear. The deficiency is with their judgment, not hers … The Senate is doing the right thing.”

“We’re moving this nomination forward and, colleagues, by tomorrow night we’ll have a new member of the United States Supreme Court.”

More from Fox News:

The vote to limit debate on the Barrett nomination — also called a “cloture” vote — limited debate on the Supreme Court nominee to 30 hours on the Senate floor. The nomination was moved forward on a 51-48 vote, with Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, the only Republicans voting against it.

Barrett will likely be sworn in as a Supreme Court justice before the end of the day.

McConnell also praised Barrett’s qualifications and accomplishments, and slammed Democrats for their opposition to the nominee who was rated “Well Qualified” for a Supreme Court seat by the American Bar Association (ABA). She earned glowing endorsements from her colleagues, including the words “brilliant,” “forthright,” and “intellectual giant.”
