Washington, DC—Today, Congressman John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement after the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett:

“I’m so pleased to see Judge Amy Coney Barrett confirmed to the highest court in the land this evening. Throughout intensive hearings, Justice Barrett displayed her razor-sharp intellect, a profound understanding of the Constitution and the role of the Judiciary, and a deep devotion to America that will make her an excellent addition to the bench. 

There’s no question that Justice Ginsberg left huge shoes to fill — but I am confident in Justice Barrett to uphold our Constitution and the law. Further, I am delighted that the next generation of female leaders across the country have yet another trailblazer showing them that they can grow up to be anything they set their minds to.”
