Both U.S. Senators from Texas are among those who voted Monday evening to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

John Cornyn and Ted Cruz joined every other Republican except for Maine Republican Susan Collins in confirming President Donald Trump’s nomination of Barrett to the high court.

Barrett will fill the vacated seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last month.
