WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement applauding President Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Senator Rick Scott said, “I applaud President Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. I am one of the few senators who has appointed people to the bench, and I believe in selecting candidates who respect the separation of powers and the proper role of the judiciary in our democratic system. Their job isn’t to make policy – it is to uphold the rule of law.
“Amy Coney Barrett has a distinguished record of service to our nation, respects the separate roles of our three branches of government and will apply and follow the law as-written, not legislate from the bench. I look forward to meeting with her to hear more about her judicial philosophy and her views on the important legal issues of our time. And I hope the Senate can move swiftly to hold a vote to confirm her to the Supreme Court.”
