Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett faced the final round of questions by senators on Capitol Hill during the third day of confirmation hearings. Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee dug deeper into the conservative judge’s outlook on abortion, healthcare and a potentially disputed presidential election.

But Barrett again avoided taking positions on a variety of subjects and rulings, saying it would be inappropriate to comment on cases that may come before her as a justice.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the committee chairman, has set an initial committee vote on the nomination for Thursday, which will be the final hearing and will include remarks from legal experts and people who know Barrett.
