The Right Choice

Roy Blunt, US Senator for Missouri Dear Unity, 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. Like Justice 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. [image = blunt.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/SCOTUS_Floorspeech.png] [link 1] 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 judicial temperament. 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. I look forward to hearing more from Judge Gorsuch as the confirmation process moves forward.

Dear Unity,

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.

Like Justice 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 judicial temperament.

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.

I look forward to hearing more from Judge Gorsuch as the confirmation process moves forward.
