(FOX NEWS) – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham predicted on Sunday that Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett will be confirmed no later than Oct. 27, which is the Tuesday before the presidential election.
Graham, R-S.C., laid out the timeline of the Barrett confirmation in a conversation with Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.” He said that the committee will have hearings Monday through Thursday before beginning its markup of the nomination Thursday afternoon, before pushing back a final committee vote on Barrett to the following Thursday.
“We’ll come back holding over a week and vote her out of committee on October the 22nd,” Graham said. “I believe she will be confirmed no later than Tuesday, a week before the election.”
“That’s my hope,” Graham added. “It will be up to Senator [Mitch] McConnell what do after the 22nd, but we can easily get her confirmed before the election.”
