Scott Statement on SCOTUS Nomination

North Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the statement below regarding President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

“From her time as a clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia, to her work as an esteemed law professor and judge, Amy Coney Barrett has proven she would be a fantastic pick for the Supreme Court. I am confident she will work to uphold the Constitution, defend our nation’s founding principles and be a valuable addition to our nation’s highest court. While Senate Democrats have already shown they are more than happy to belittle her faith through baseless partisan attacks, I look forward to voting on Judge Barrett’s nomination this year.”
