The confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett resumes Tuesday, led by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
While Monday's hearing consisted of opening remarks, things are expected to heat up on Tuesday. Senators will question Barrett on her career and her position on issues that could come before the court, including health care, guns, abortion and religion. Each senator will have about 20 minutes to question Barrett. The hearings – tasked with vetting Barrett’s background and stance on issues that could come before the high court – could be key for a number of senators before the November election.
