WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement on the Senate confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“Today, we did the job we were sent here to do. Congratulations to Justice Barrett on being confirmed and to Leader McConnell and Chairman Graham for successfully shepherding her nomination through the Senate. History will look back on today as the day we confirmed one of the most impressive judicial nominees we’ve seen in a generation. She is a brilliant, virtuous jurist who is ready to serve our country on the nation’s highest court. I am honored to have cast my vote to confirm her.” 

Senator Cramer outlined his support for Justice Barrett’s nomination in remarks on the Senate floor this weekend after announcing last Thursday he will vote to confirm her.

When she was nominated, Senator Cramer applauded President Trump for selecting Justice Barrett and called on the Senate to take up her nomination this year. The senator met with Justice Barrett on Capitol Hill earlier this month.
