    Democrats are calling on voters to stop the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. “They may confirm this justice. But the American people can still stop it if they stand up and they speak out,” said Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal. “You have the power to stop this nomination. If you make it known as powerfully as possible to your senators what it means to you.” This comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee wrapped up the first of four days of planned confirmation hearings for Barrett. President Donald Trump nominated Barrett just two weeks ago to fill the seat of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Sept. 18. Trump and Republicans want Barrett on the bench in time for Election Day, Nov. 3. Barrett, a conservative, would shift the balance on the court significantly right, from 5-4 in favor of conservatives to 6-3. Democrats worry she would vote to rule the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional in a case coming before the court in November. “We do not have some secret, clever procedural way to stop this sham. Let’s be honest. And as good as we are, it’s probably not going to be some brilliant cross-examination that is going to change the trajectory of this nomination,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. “But there is one thing that will and that is the people of this country. That is them voting. That is them understanding exactly what the Republican Party and this administration are doing right now and how it’s going to affect their lives.”
