Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) led the committee in a vote Thursday morning to move the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the full Senate, despite a boycott by the committee's Democrat members that prevented a full quorum from being present.
According to Senate rules, a quorum including at least two minority members of the committee must be present to hold a vote on advancing the nominee. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced Wednesday that none of the committee's Democratic members would be present for the vote.
The Republican members of the committee voted 12-0 to move her nomination to the full Senate. The full Senate vote is scheduled for Monday, October 26.
