WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman James Comer (KY-1) released the following statement on the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

“This is a great day for America, as a judge with extraordinary qualifications will take her well-deserved seat on the highest court in the land. With a wealth of experience, deep knowledge of the law and the Constitution as a guiding light, Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be a superstar on the Supreme Court for decades to come. I look forward to seeing her join President Trump’s other successful nominees in protecting our constitutional rights, pushing back against judicial activism and respecting the rule of law.”
