WASHINGTON – Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) today issued the following statement on the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court:

“Judge Barrett boasts an impeccable academic and judicial resume, making her an excellent pick to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court. Her record on the Seventh Circuit and her time in academia at Notre Dame makes it clear that she believes a judge's role is to apply the law based on the original text of the Constitution, not impose their own preference or ideology. Our highest court should reflect a legal philosophy that places life, liberty, and the words of the Constitution above all else. Judge Barrett will uphold that vision and be a defender of our foundational principles on the Supreme Court. I am glad to see her confirmation and look forward to hearing more of her jurisprudence in the coming years.”

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the 1st District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he serves as the ranking member of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
