Palmer Applauds Confirmation of New Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett
Washington, D.C. - Today, the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the newest Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Congressman Gary Palmer (AL-06) released the following statement:
'I send my heartiest congratulations to the new Justice Barrett,' Palmer said. 'President Trump could not have chosen a better candidate for the Supreme Court. Her impeccable legal record, faithfulness to the Constitution, and steady demeanor during her Senate hearings all indicate that she will serve our country with distinction and integrity. The confirmation of an eminently qualified, fair, and constitutionalist justice should instill confidence in the American people. I believe that Justice Barrett will refrain from being swayed by the political winds, and that she will enforce the laws as written, reserving the act of legislating to the Congress. I look forward to her service on our nation's highest court and extend my congratulations to her and her family.'
