Judge Gorsuch Deserves Support for Supreme Court

Washington — This evening, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch, who was confirmed to the Tenth Circuit in 2006 by a voice vote, to fill the current Supreme Court vacancy. Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“Judge Neil Gorsuch is a nominee ‘very much in the mold’ of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.  President Trump deserves credit for fulfilling his campaign pledge by nominating an individual who will, based on his record, interpret the text of the Constitution rather than create unwritten rights supposedly hidden between the lines. The usurpations of the rule of law, substituting for the will of the people as embodied in democratically enacted legislation rights nowhere to be found in our Constitution itself, only serves to divide our nation. Judge Gorsuch is an outstanding choice, and now the Senate must prepare to carry out its ‘Advise and Consent’ role as it has for the past 227 years.”

Heritage Action intends to key vote in favor of Judge Gorsuch’s nomination.
