WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today released the following statement after Judge Amy Coney Barrett received a favorable recommendation from the Senate Judiciary Committee to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“Throughout the Senate Judiciary hearings, Judge Amy Coney Barrett demonstrated an exemplary personal character, a deep and principled understanding of the Constitution and the law, and a strong commitment to being a judge and not a lawmaker. During my meeting with her earlier this month, we spoke about her time as a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and her experience as a professor at Notre Dame Law School. Judge Amy Coney Barrett is the most impressive nominee I have interviewed and considered during my time in the Senate, and I look forward to voting to support her confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.”
