WASHINGTON D.C. — The Republican-led Senate held a final vote on the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 48, to the Supreme Court Monday night despite continued protests from Democrats.

The Senate voted 52-48 to confirm the now Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

The confirmation provides conservatives with a 6-3 majority on the high court, including three Trump picks.

The confirmation comes just eight days before the final votes are cast in the Presidential election between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and 38 days after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
