Summary

WASHINGTON (AP) — Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett batted back Democrats’ skeptical questions on abortion, health care and a possible disputed election in a lively Senate confirmation hearing Tuesday, insisting she would bring no personal agenda to the court but would decide cases “as they come.”The 48-year-old appellate court judge declared her conservative views with often colloquial language, but refused many specifics. But she told Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., that “making broader diagnoses about the problem of racism is kind of beyond what I’m capable of doing as a judge.”Republicans were thrilled when she held up a blank notebook, apparently showing she had been fielding questions without aid.Overall, Barrett’s conservative views are at odds with the late Ginsburg, the liberal icon whose seat Trump nominated her to fill.“You would be the polar opposite of Justice Ginsburg,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.Barring a dramatic development, Republicans appear to have the votes to confirm Barrett to a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, and they spent their time portraying her as a thoughtful judge with impeccable credentials.
