U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after the committee voted to move Judge Barrett’s nomination to the floor for a full vote.

"Judge Barrett ran circles around the Democrats’ failed attempts to slander her character, faith, and family during these hearings. They don’t like that Judge Barrett is going to do what judges are supposed to do – rise above politics and refuse to legislate from the bench. The polls show that Americans clearly support her confirmation. It’s time for Chuck Schumer to drop the shenanigans and get this done."
