Amy Coney Barrett set to be confirmed to Supreme Court on Monday

Senate Republicans appear to have the 51 votes needed to approve the conservative jurist a month after her nomination.

WASHINGTON — The Republican-controlled Senate is poised to confirm Amy Coney Barrett on Monday as a Supreme Court justice, handing President Donald Trump a political victory days before the election.

The final vote is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday — 30 days after Trump announced he was nominating Barrett for the seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Sept. 18. The vote could be held later if Democrats force delays.

The White House is considering holding a swearing-in ceremony for Barrett after the vote, either late Monday or Tuesday, according to an administration official.
