Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) recently met with Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The two met on Capitol Hill Wednesday to discuss the Constitution and give Sen. Romney a chance to evaluate Barrett.

The Utah Republican signaled on Tuesday, he supports the President’s decision to put forward a new Supreme Court nominee. The two met as part of efforts for Romney and other GOP members to discuss Barrett’s qualifications. The members hope to reach a consensus to support Barrett as a nominee for the Supreme Court.

“I’m really looking forward to our chance to speak, I’m sure we’ll have a very interesting and informative opportunity to speak with each other,” Romney stated.

Barrett is set to meet with ten senators in her tour to be vetted by the Republican Senate members.

Romney has stated he intends to vote on the nomination should it make it to the Senate floor before the 2020 election. He has not signaled whether or not he would vote to place her on the high court, but has embraced the nomination and defended it’s constitutionality.
