“Judge Barrett is a well-respected jurist, an accomplished legal scholar, and a mother to seven beautiful children. I am truly grateful for her example for all of us working moms, but especially for young women across this country. She has proven a mom really can do anything,” said Senator Ernst. “Today, Judge Barrett and I had a conversation around her judicial record and commitment to the Constitution. She deserves a fair and honest confirmation process, and I am committed to evaluating Judge Barrett on the basis of her qualifications and character.”
