CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Moments after President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant seat left behind by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Wyoming’s political leaders chimed in.
House Republican Conference Chair and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney said “Judge Barrett is an excellent choice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. She is exceptionally qualified and her record demonstrates an unwavering fidelity to the constitution. Throughout her career, she has adhered to the fundamental principle, ‘Courts are not arenas for politics. Courts are places where judges discharge the duty to uphold the rule of the law.' The people of Wyoming and the nation will be well-served by Judge Barrett and her commitment to interpreting the Constitution and defending the rule of law. I applaud President Trump for nominating her and urge the Senate to move expeditiously to confirm her.”
Senator John Barrasso, chairman of the Senate Republican Conference said “My congratulations to Judge Barrett and her family. I look forward to reviewing her judicial record and other writings, and following her confirmation hearings. This is a historic choice by the president. Judge Barrett is a highly qualified nominee. She will apply the law, not legislate from the bench. This Senate will give Judge Barrett full and fair consideration, and a timely vote on the Senate floor.”
At the time of this posting, we have not heard from Senator Mike Enzi on his thoughts of the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the highest law in the land.
