On Saturday, after days of speculation, Trump announced that he would be nominating the 48-year-old federal judge to replace Ginsburg, who died on Sept. 18, and urged Republican lawmakers to appoint her “without delay″ despite Ginsburg's dying wish that her ″successor will not be named until a new president is installed.”

Democrats were also quick to criticize the GOP's zeal as hypocritical, given how they blocked President Barack Obama from filling a vacant Supreme Court seat months before the previous presidential election.

Barrett once clerked for late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and is seen by both Republicans and Democrats as a social conservative who interprets the law by its original text. Legal experts and lawmakers believe she could have a great impact on potential rulings for issues such as abortion rights and the Affordable Care Act.
