U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued a statement following her vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be the newest Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

“The Senate has rarely ever had a nominee with the exceptional qualifications and characteristics of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.  I’ve never been more confident of a vote for a nominee than I am in voting for Judge Barrett.  She will be a conservative jurist committed to interpreting the law and not legislating from the bench.  In the years ahead, I believe the American people will be proud to have Judge Barrett on the Supreme Court.”

Hyde-Smith delivered a speech last week explaining her support for Barrett’s confirmation.  Find video and the text of those remarks here.
