Amy Coney Barrett

The Senate has voted 52-48 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, just about a week before Election Day and 30 days after she was nominated by President Trump to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In a White House ceremony following the vote Monday evening, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas administered the constitutional oath to Coney Barrett.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett acknowledged Tuesday the existence of implicit bias within the criminal justice system when questioned about the issue by Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.

The Senate Judiciary Committee held its fourth and final day of hearings on Thursday on President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If confirmed, Barrett, 48, would replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the high court.

Gov. Chris Sununu has declined to join most other Republican governors in signing a letter in support of confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. As NHPR’s Josh Rogers reports, Sununu joined GOP governors on similar letters in support of Trump’s previous high court nominations.

Supporters and opponents of Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court wasted no time launching a high-pitched battle over her confirmation, with just 37 days until the election.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has the support of Republicans to move forward with the confirmation process and confirm Barrett on the Senate floor before Nov. 3, barring any development in her vetting.
