US Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barret met top Republican senators, starting with the Majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to prepare a confirmation vote for her election.

The 48-year-old judge held one-on-one meetings with leading Republican Senators before wrapping up her day with Lindsey Graham, the senator from South Carolina who will chair her confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

US President Donald Trump nominated Barret, a favorite of conservatives, to the Supreme Court to replace the late liberal justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett’s nomination can impact some of the most partisan issues in the United States, from abortion to gun rights to health care.

Trump hopes the party to conclude the voting for Barret’s election to the Supreme Court before November 3 elections while the Democrats are calling for the decision to be made by the winner of the vote

Senator Chuck Schumer, the leader of the Democratic minority in the Republican-controlled Senate, said he would not be meeting Barrett.

“I am not going to meet with Judge Barrett,” Schumer tweeted. “Why would I meet with a nominee of such an illegitimate process.”

Several other Democratic senators also said they would decline to meet with Barrett, however Cory Booker of New Jersey, on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he would meet her.

The hearings on Barrett’s confirmation will begin on October 12 by the Judiciary Committee with the full Senate voting on her nomination. Republicans, who hold 53 of the 100 seats in the Senate, are expected to confirm Barrett.

If so, Barrett would expand the conservative wing’s sometimes shaky 5-4 advantage on the court to a solid 6-3.

Trump has previously filled two of the nine seats on the high court.
