Barrett tells doubtful Dems she’d keep open mind on court

Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett presented herself Wednesday in her final round of Senate confirmation questioning as a judge with a conservative approach and deeply held personal and religious beliefs but committed to keeping an open mind in rulings on the court.

Senate Republicans are championing President Donald Trump’s pick, an originalist who adheres to a strict reading of the Constitution. Doubtful Democrats are digging deeper into the judge’s approach to health care, abortion, racial equity and voting rights, but they are running out of time to stop her quick confirmation.
