Hoeven Statement After Meeting With Judge Amy Coney Barrett

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven released the following statement after meeting today with U.S. Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who has been nominated to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. 

“I appreciate the opportunity to meet with Judge Barrett to discuss her experience as well as her judicial philosophy. She has an outstanding record of accomplishment both on the bench and as a law professor at Notre Dame Law School. Throughout her career, Judge Barrett has shown a deep respect for the Constitution, as well as a strong commitment to upholding the law, rather than legislating from the bench. This is the judicial philosophy that I believe is best for our state and nation. After meeting with Judge Barrett, I believe she will be a strong, fair and impartial justice and I look forward to supporting her nomination."
