Sen. Rick Scott Statement on Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation to Supreme Court

October 27, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the below statement following the U.S. Senate vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.  


Senator Rick Scott said, “The Democrats want judges that are activists who will legislate from the bench. Thankfully, Judge Amy Coney Barrett believes in the proper role of a judge envisioned by the Framers when they designed a three-branch system of government in our Constitution. 


“The Democrats refused to engage in this process and attempted to smear Judge Barrett, because they knew they couldn’t question her qualifications. Senate Republicans refused to back down and let the Radical Left destroy a good person and a great judge. I’m honored to support Judge Barrett’s nomination today, and I look forward to her lifelong service as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.”
