During his opening statement Texas Senator Ted Cruz argued  Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s qualifications are so strong that Democrats are barely mentioning her during this nomination hearing.

“To date of every Democrat who’s spoken, we’ve heard virtually not a single word about Judge Barrett,” Cruz said. 

Cruz pointed out Barrett graduated number one in her class at Notre Dame Law and clerked for Justice Scalia.

“Democratic senators view the Court as a super-legislature, as a policy-making body…Who in their right mind would want the United States of America ruled by five unelected lawyers wearing black robes?”

“This question of what happens when there’s a Supreme Court vacancy during a presidential election year — 2020 is not the first time America’s faced that question.”
