“As President of the United States, President Trump has the constitutional obligation to put forward a U.S. Supreme Court nominee, and I applaud his selection of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who is both highly qualified and highly respected. In addition to her distinguished judicial career, Judge Coney Barrett is a mother of seven, a constitutional scholar, and an esteemed law professor.”

He added that, “Judge Coney Barrett’s prior writings and judicial opinions show that she will interpret the law fairly and impartially, and I urge the U.S. Senate to act quickly to confirm her nomination.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH5) provided the following statement after President Trump’s announcement of the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court:

“I commend President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to serve on our nation’s highest court. Judge Coney Barrett has impeccable credentials and a strong record of upholding the Constitution. She is somebody who will interpret the law – not make it – in a fair and just manner. We’ve already seen strong endorsements from those in the legal field based on her qualifications, and it’s clear that she should be approved by the U.S. Senate. In line with existing precedent, the Senate should work promptly to consider her nomination and appoint her to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
