WASHINGTON – The Latest on the presidential campaign (all times local):

6:10 p.m.

President Donald Trump is celebrating the expected confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court as he campaigns in Pennsylvania during his third rally of the day.

Trump asked a crowd of thousands that gathered Monday at an airport in Martinsburg: "That was a good choice, wasn’t it?”

Trump says he’s glad that Barrett didn’t run for president and that he would rather be running against former Vice President Joe Biden.

He says, “We were all watching in great amusement as she was so-called grilled by the opposition.”

Barrett is expected to be confirmed to the Supreme Court on Monday night. She is Trump's third nomination to the Supreme Court, after Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
