On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley stated Judge Amy Coney Barrett is “probably the most reliable pro-life nominee” on President Trump’s Supreme Court shortlist.
Turley said, “[T]he positions on both sides are pretty much baked in. The Democrats are looking at a very tough political environment for them to support any nominee, with the exception of a few of these senators in purple states, people like Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Manchin (D) in West Virginia. They’re going to be in a tough position for this nomination. But it’s a razor-thin margin. You know, there are a couple of Republicans that could easily bolt. That’s what makes Barrett’s nomination so fascinating. She’s probably the most reliable pro-life nominee on the shortlist, and that could end up costing a couple of Republican senators.”
