Senator Joni Ernst deserves credit: She kept her word to support conservative, constitutionalists for the bench by announcing her support for President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

The left is outraged, but if they had the White House and Senate, they would support an election-year nominee. This nominee checks all the boxes: She is a brilliant legal scholar, is roundly supported by a bipartisan collection of her colleagues, and is committed to preserving the original intent of the Constitution. Thank you, Senator Ernst, for standing up to the leftist outrage machine, and the national media, in supporting this great choice for the court.
