Johnson, Senate confirms new Supreme Court Justice

Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin was one of the 52 votes to confirm the newest Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Amy Coney Barrett officially joined the nation’s highest court shortly after the vote was held on Monday. Johnson met with Justice Barrett last week and praised her as a brilliant legal mind who is committed to applying the law rather than altering it. He says she is the type of judge that conservatives like.

Johnson attended the swearing-in ceremony for Justice Barrett at the White House Monday night and called it a proud moment. His Democratic colleague from Wisconsin, Senator Tammy Baldwin, voted against the confirmation. We talked to her about the Supreme Court confirmation process last week.
