Washington, D.C. – House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the confirmation of Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court:

“Amy Coney Barrett worked her entire career for this moment – she earned every bit of this achievement.

“Many of us already knew she was imminently qualified when President Trump first announced her nomination, but her approval among Americans, including Democrats and Independents, has only continued to rise through her hearing process.

“Her astute understanding of the Constitution and commitment to interpreting the laws as written make her an outstanding addition to the Supreme Court.

“There is no question she will continue to inspire our nation for decades.

“I congratulate President Trump for his excellent choice, Senator McConnell for running a fair process, and most of all, Justice Barrett for her incredible accomplishment.”
