Amy Coney Barrett to begin meeting Senate Republicans

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, will begin meeting with senators on Tuesday, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, according to a senior administration official.

In addition to McConnell (R-Ky.), Barrett will also meet with several Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, including Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Mike Crapo (R-Idaho). She will also meet with Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sens. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.).

Trump officially nominated Barrett on Saturday to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, setting off a contentious fight just weeks away from the presidential election.
