FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) -Senator Lisa Murkowski issued a statement after President Trump nominated U.S. Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court:

“For weeks I have stated that I do not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to an election. But today the President exercised his constitutional authority to nominate an individual to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I welcome the opportunity to meet with the Supreme Court nominee, just as I did in 2016.”
