Amy Coney Barrett

The highly anticipated Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court have ended and the votes are in. Barrett was officially confirmed by a Senate vote of 52-48 on Oct. 26, just eight days before the 2020 election.

The confirmation solidifies the Supreme Court as a conservative 6-3 majority, potentially shifting the balance of the court to the right on ideological issues such as gun rights, abortion, business and the environment. Additionally, all eyes will be on Barrett when the court is set to argue the fate of Obamacare on Nov. 10.
