WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following the Judiciary Committee’s vote to favorably report to the Senate floor the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Senator Rick Scott said, “Judge Amy Coney Barrett has proven she is a nominee of indisputable credentials and qualifications. The Democrats can’t attack Judge Barrett on her merits, so they are refusing to show up and engage in this process. Today’s temper tantrum was an embarrassment that shows just how little the Democrats care about doing their job. This is all about the election to them. It’s pathetic – but what we’ve come to expect. Whether they come to the table or not, we will confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
