Young: Incredibly talented potential nominees, including Judge Amy Coney Barrett Facebook Google+ IndianaLocalNews Twitter (Photo supplied/U.S. Senator Todd Young) Sen. Todd Young says he believes the Senate should act once the president announces his nominee for the next justice to serve on the Unites States Supreme Court, Saturday.Young, a Republican, said he would dutifully evaluate the nominee’s qualifications, but that he believes there’s precedent to support the quick action of the president in appointing someone to serve, following the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.“When this Republican President was elected in 2016, and when the American people expanded the Republican majority in the Senate elections of 2018, the expectation of the American people was that should a Supreme Court vacancy arise that that vacancy should be filled,” said Young, in a Tuesday news conference in Washington.Young said he believes Hoosiers want him to act, so he will.“The President has put forward a list of incredibly talented potential nominees, including Indiana’s own Judge Amy Coney Barrett, but I think any of the judges that the President has been discussing in recent days would be an excellent choice. It is my intention to dutifully evaluate the records of whoever the President ultimately nominates and to ensure bold action following his nomination.”Young said he believes the American people will “be proud of” whomever is nominated and is ultimately appointed to the country’s highest court.Sen. Mike Braun, Indiana’s junior senator, also a Republican, said in a Tuesday conference call that he is also in favor of a justice being appointed before the presidential election, and he favors Barrett.
