Additionally, although Generation X, born between 1965 and 1981, is smaller compared to baby boomers before them or the millennials who came after, Gen Xers are finally beginning to take on the levers of power.

According to a report by CNBC, Gen X now accounts for just over half of all leadership positions worldwide. Generation Xers make up nearly 50% of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development country leaders.

On Capitol Hill, there are 19 members of Generation X in the Senate, with 12 Republicans, seven Democrats, and dozens more in the lower chamber, as new candidates run for office each election cycle and are sworn into office and others leave.

"If you only wanted to serve for a few years, that wasn't very interesting to me," said Scott, Florida governor from 2011-19. "I want people that are going to be on the courts and really learn how to be a judge and do a good job for a long time."

“These are judges, and in Judge Barrett's case, and in Kavanaugh’s and Gorsuch, who will likely serve now for the next, one would think, 25, 30 years.

But I think it is quite significant."

Hawley noted that Barrett was a clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia while also mentioning likely future colleagues, Justice Stephen Breyer and Chief Justice John Roberts.
