Sen. Barrasso Says Barrett “Is A Role Model” For A Generation
Barrett was recently chosen by Trump to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the high court.
The announcement has been at the center of a political firestorm recently, as Democrats have said the nomination should be put on hold until whoever wins the Nov. 3 Presidential election is sworn into office a new congress is seated. Supreme Court nominations must be approved by the senate.
Republicans argue that the president has both a right and an obligation to nominate a new justice for the court now rather than waiting.
