Re: I Support Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the US Supreme Court!


I am writing today because I support Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the US Supreme Court and want you to confirmation her nomination.

I support the Judge for the following reasons:

  • Judge Barrett considers herself an originalist and Constitutional scholar who served as a law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia;
  • Her professional actions have shown that she will support the US Constitution - as written and not as an ‘activist judge’;
  • She currently sits on one of the nation’s most important courts – the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit;
  • The US Senate Judiciary Committee vetted her and voted 11 to 9 in 2017 to confirm her to the court;
  • The full US Senate voted in 2017 to confirm her appointment to the bench by a vote of 55-43;
  • She has a diverse record of accomplishment, including:
    • Teaching Law at Notre Dame Law School while serving on the Federal Bench;
    • Raising a family of 7 while serving the American public;
    • Has experience at all judicial levels, including the US Supreme Court as a clerk for Justice Scalia and on the U.S. Court of Appeals for Judge Laurence Silverman;
  • If selected, at 48, she would be the youngest justice on the Court;
  • She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rhodes College in Tennessee in 1994 and Summa Cum Laude in 1997 from Notre Dame Law School;
  • Served as Executive Editor of the Notre Dame Law School’s Law Review;
  • She taught law school for 15 years and was named “Distinguished Professor of the Year” three times;
  Before I close, I want you to know that I am a registered voter and that I will be voting in the 2020 General Elections, and when I vote, I will be supporting candidates who support her nomination. For those reasons, I respectfully ask that you vote “yes” for Judge Barrett’s confirmation to the U. S. Supreme Court when her nomination comes before you.
