The US Senate has voted to Advance Supreme Court candidate, Amy Coney Barrett towards final confirmation as the US Presidential Election Approaches.
Oyogist.com learnt that although Rebuplicants were happy with the latest development, Democrats on the other hand were in support of keeping the senate in session, arguing that the US November 3 Election winner should choose the candidate, best fit to fill the vacancy left by the late former Judge, Ruth Bader.
A Republican named Collins, said she won’t vote for Barret so close to the election.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., while defending the handling of the process said thus;
“Our recent debates have been heated, but curiously talk of Judge Barrett’s actual credentials or qualifications are hardly featured,” McConnell said. He said she was one of the most “impressive” nominees for public office “in a generation.”
Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York advised Republicans not to go ahead with the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett until after the election.”
“She’s a conservative woman who embraces her faith, she’s unabashedly pro-life but she’s not going to apply ‘the law of Amy’ to all of us,” said the committee chairman, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said late Saturday on Fox.
