“Today, I proudly voted to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court. Justice Barrett’s qualifications and character are indisputable. She is a brilliant jurist, and as a mother of seven children, she is an inspiration to professional women, working moms and school-aged girls across Montana who can feel certain there is no American Dream that women can’t achieve,” Daines said. “Justice Barrett will safeguard our liberties, defend the Constitution, and protect our Montana way of life—including the Second Amendment and our Montana jobs—for decades to come.”
