Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) issued the following statement on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:

“I congratulate Judge Barrett on her nomination to serve on our nation’s highest court.  After a successful private career, including time as a law instructor at the University of Notre Dame and clerking for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, she was successfully confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals.  President Trump has made it clear that his candidates for the high court must demonstrate the utmost commitment to upholding our Constitution, and I am confident that – just like Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh – Judge Barrett will serve our nation well in this role.  I hope Senate Democrats elect not to shamelessly smear this well-qualified woman, and I wish her a speedy confirmation in time for the Court’s fall term.”
