‘We did it’: Senate Judiciary Republicans approve advancement of Judge Barrett’s Nomination


The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to approve the advancement of Judge Amy Coney Barret’s, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, nomination to a full Senate vote. Twelve members voted in favor of the move, while 10 members voted “not present.”

After the motion passed, the Committee Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said, “We did it. We did it. Judge Barrett’s going to the floor. I hope you look back on this time on the Committee and say I was there when it mattered and you were.”
