It’s starting to look more and more like Republicans will be able to confirm Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court.
According to a new report released by The Hill, Senator Ted Cruz says that he’s “very confident” that Republicans have the votes necessary to get Barrett approved to the highest court in the land. He says Republicans have a solid 51 votes.
Cruz Says Barrett Has The Votes
In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Cruz says that Republicans have the votes necessary to get the conservative Amy Barrett confirmed to the Supreme Court, saying:
“I’m very confident. I believe we have the votes. I believe we’ll get it done.”
Cruz then went a step further, stating that Republicans have a “solid” 51 votes secured and that it looks like that won’t change any time soon:
“As I see it, we have a solid 51 votes right now. And from the conversations in the conference, I don’t see that changing.”
Cruz’s recent statements predicting a GOP victory for confirming Amy Barrett. In fact, one Republican Senator even recently said he was willing to come to the Senate in a “moon suit” to help confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
