U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Judiciary Committee who urged President Trump to nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court for the past three years, issued the following statement after the Senate voted today to end debate and bring Judge Barrett’s confirmation to a final vote on Monday.

"It’s all over but the shouting. Democrats didn’t lay a glove on Judge Barrett and, despite the ugly attacks on her faith and family, she’s going to have a final up or down vote tomorrow. Amy Coney Barrett is beyond well-qualified for the Supreme Court — she is one of the greatest legal minds in America. We’ve spent years getting to this point. Judge Barrett belongs on the Supreme Court, and she’ll be there soon."
