Senate Judiciary Committee Sets Date For Vote On Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation

The Senate Judiciary Committee set a date to vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett after three days of hearings.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham set October 22 as the date for the vote Thursday morning, despite pushback from Democrats, as Republicans are trying to confirm Barrett before the November 3 election. After the vote passes the committee, it can then be brought to the floor for a full vote in the Senate.

WATCH:
 

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Sunday that Democrats will not “supply quorum” for votes in the Senate as a way to try and block the confirmation of Barrett before the election. Schumer went on to say that one way Democrats are considering blocking the confirmation is by not supplying quorum, meaning Democrats would not show up so work could not be done.
