USA TODAYWASHINGTON – The Senate voted along nearly party lines to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, completing a sprint to place her on the high court just days before Election Day and solidifying a 6-3 conservative majority on the bench.
Barrett was confirmed by a slim 52-48 vote. One Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, joined the chamber's 47 Democrats in voting against the nomination. She is set to be sworn in at a White House ceremony Monday evening.Barrett, 48, will become the fifth woman to serve on the Supreme Court, filling the vacancy left by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September. Her swearing-in means she’ll likely be able to hear cases as early as next week, including a challenge to the Affordable Care Act that Democrats worry will upend the health care of millions.
The vote caps a confirmation process that – while at times respectful – fueled intense partisanship in the Senate, with the added drama of happening in the middle of a global pandemic and weeks before a presidential election.Senators debated Barrett’s nomination over the weekend with both sides reiterating arguments sounded throughout the confirmation process in the lead-up to the final vote. For the final 30 hours of debate, senators stayed overnight from Sunday evening into Monday, taking turns holding the floor. Democrats warned of the consequences of Barrett’s confirmation for hot-button issues like the Affordable Care Act and election disputes, while Republicans lauded Barrett’s qualifications and touted her pending confirmation as a key accomplishment of President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans that Democrats would be unable to erode.
The White House is preparing a public swearing-in ceremony later Monday evening after her expected approval by the Senate, officials said, allowing Barrett to quickly join the bench and weigh in on a host of crucial questions set to come before the high court in the coming days.
