FORT MYERS, Fla. — Demonstrators in Southwest Florida are wearing red to oppose any Supreme Court Justice nomination by President Trump.

Organizers of the "Red Cloak Protest: Ruth Sent Us" protest in Fort Myers said they also wanted to honor the memory of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and affirm equal rights for women.

The protest comes as the Senate moves to advance the final confirmation vote of Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Monday, just a few weeks before Election Day.
