President Donald Trump on Saturday ran for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, a decision that crowns a drastic reorganization of the judiciary that will resonate for a generation and which the representative hopes will offer a necessary impetus to his re-election campaign.

Barret, a former secretary to the late magistrate Antonin Scalia, said she felt “truly honored” by the nomination and quickly aligned hemed scalia’s conservative legal approach by stating that her “judicial philosophy is mine too.”

The head of the Senate Legal Affairs Committee, Republican Lindsey Graham, said he hopes his panel will approve Barrett’s nomination for the week of October 26, leaving everything seen for a senate vote a week before the November 3 election.

Barret, 48, was accompanied in the White House Rose Garden by her husband and seven children. If the Senate ratifies her in office, she will fill the vacancy of iconic liberal judge Ruth Bader Ginsberg. It could be the sharpest ideological turn since Clarence Thomas replaced Judge Thurgood Marshall nearly three decades ago.

The judge could become the sixth minister in the nine-member court run by a Republican representative, and the third in Trump’s first term in the presidency.

Trump praised Barrett as “a woman of remarkable intellect and character”

Republican senators in advance are grouped together for early confirmation from Barrett, while seeking to secure the conservative advantage in the federal judiciary in the face of a potential transition of power. Meanwhile, Trump hopes the nomination will serve to move his supporters as he tries to defend himself against Democrat Joe Biden.

For Trump, whose victory in 2016 depended heavily on the reluctant support of white evangelicals with the promise of occupying Scalia’s vacancy with a conservative, the most recent nomination somehow closes the circle of his first term. Even before Ginsburg’s death, Trump was interested in having more than 200 federal judges confirmed, meeting a generational target of conservative legal activists.

Trump jokingly said the next ratification process “should be simple” and “extremely un controversial,” though it is likely to be quite the opposite. No contender has been considered so close to presidential elections before, in which the forward vote is already underway. Trump encouraged lawmakers to consider Barret’s nomination quickly and called on Democrats to “refrain from making personal and partisan attacks.”

In 2016, Republicans blocked President Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court to fill a vacancy during an election year and claimed that voters should have authority on a lifetime appointment. Republicans in the Senate say they will move forward this time and argued that the circumstances are different now that the White House and Senate are controlled by the same party.
