U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Votes to Advance Supreme Court Nomination

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted on Thursday to advance Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate. Democrat members of the committee boycotted the vote and arranged for posters of constituents they claim were helped by the Affordable Care Act to be placed at their seats instead. All 12 Republican committee members voted to report Barrett's nomination to the entire Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that a vote to confirm Barrett would be held on October 26.
