Ahead of her meeting with Judge Barrett, Ernst and her fellow Republican women senators held a press conference to speak on the nomination. As KGLO wrote, Ernst spoke on the importance of this nomination for women across the country: “This is what a mom can do. I tell my daughter that all the time,’ Ernst said. ‘…A mom can be a combat veteran…A mom can serve in the United States Senate and, most certainly, a mom can be a Supreme Court justice.’”
