"Senate Republicans just pushed through a Supreme Court justice who will help them take away Americans' health care in the middle of a pandemic. For them, this is victory," she tweeted. "Vote them out."

Clinton's tweet came moments after the Senate confirmed Barrett in a 52-48 vote, with Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), who faces a tough reelection fight, breaking party lines as the only GOP senator to oppose Barrett.
