WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today released the following statement on the Senate's vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States: 

"Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett has impeccable credentials. She graduated number one in her class at Notre Dame Law School, she clerked for the great Justice Antonin Scalia and she's been a law professor at Notre Dame for 20 years. She's been one of the most respected federal appellate judges in the country, and somehow she manages to do all that while being a mom to seven kids.

"When President Trump nominated Judge Barrett, it was one of the most important decisions of his presidency. In making this nomination, the president was fulfilling the promise he made to the American people to nominate principled constitutionalists to the Supreme Court. Today, Senate Republicans voted to confirm Judge Barrett, and fulfilled our promise to confirm principled constitutionalists to the Supreme Court. Sadly, however, Senate Democrats tried every delay tactic they could to derail this process, including staging a boycott of the Senate Judiciary's vote on Judge Barrett's nomination. Fortunately, these delay tactics did not stall Judge Barrett's nomination.

"Justice Barrett's confirmation comes at a critical time for our country. Far too often, we are just one vote away from seeing our liberties - our freedom of speech, our religious liberty, our Second Amendment rights - trampled on at the Supreme Court. Confirming Justice Barrett to the Court is a great victory for every American who cares about the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and our fundamental liberties."
