President Donald Trump has chosen Judge Amy Coney Barrett — who is currently serving on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit — to fill the Supreme Court seat previously held by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett was nominated to the Seventh Circuit by President Trump in 2017.
Barrett is a staunch Catholic, a favorite of the religious right, and a former law clerk to conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Her judicial record is fairly thin, owing to the fact that she’s only been a judge for about three years, but that short record suggests she’ll be a reliable conservative if confirmed to the Supreme Court.
