US Senate expected to confirm Barrett on Monday

Oct 26, 2020

Washington (US), Oct 26: The US Senate is expected to make a final confirmation vote on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court justice nominee as early as Monday.
The Republican-controlled Senate voted on Sunday to limit debate time on the nomination to 30 hours, which would be until 7 p.m. on Monday.
Republicans have been pushing for a final confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett ahead of the November 3 presidential election. Democrats have protested the move, saying the winner of the election should choose the nominee.
Barrett's confirmation would expand the Supreme Court's conservative majority to 6-3. This could affect how the top court rules in possible cases related to the presidential election.
