WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement upon Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court of the United States.

“I’m very proud and excited to see Judge Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the United States Supreme Court. Despite disgraceful attacks on her faith, Judge Barrett had one of the most impressive confirmation hearings I’ve ever seen and it is an honor to have a New Orleans native on the highest court in the land. This confirmation marks another significant achievement for President Trump, who has repeatedly delivered on his promise to appoint conservative judges who will interpret laws according to the Constitution as it is written, rather than judges who carry out their personal agendas.”
