In February of last year, our nation mourned the passing of Supreme
Court Justice Antonin Scalia, a lion on the court and an unwavering
defender of the Constitution.
While it�s impossible to replace
Justice Scalia�s strong and thoughtful voice, I�m pleased with
President Donald Trump�s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an
Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
Scalia, Judge Gorsuch understands that the job of the Supreme Court is to
apply the rule of law and not legislate from the bench. In his decade on
the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals bench, Judge Gorsuch has
demonstrated a steadfast commitment to upholding the rule of law and
interpreting the Constitution as its authors intended.
Many of the nation�s top
lawyers, judges, and law professors on both sides of the aisle have
praised Judge Gorsuch�s integrity, professional qualifications, and
The president�s nomination of a Supreme
Court Justice is one of the most important legacies he is likely to leave.
I believe President Trump made the right choice in selecting Judge
Gorsuch to begin shaping the long-term view of the court.
look forward to hearing more from Judge Gorsuch as the confirmation
process moves forward.
