Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett met with Senator Mitt Romney Wednesday morning along with other GOP senators.

"I've been looking forward to this for a long time. I went to law school, and professors like this, once upon a time professors like this, ask me a lot of questions, and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to return the fire," said Romney.

Romney has said he supports holding a vote on her nomination ahead of the election.

President Trump is pushing for that timeline. He offered Barrett the job just 72-hours after the announcement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.
