Feb 1, 2017 Issues: Constitutional Issues

Washington, D.C. - In response to President Trump’s selection of Neil Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Congressman Jeff Duncan released the following statement: 

“Once again, President Trump has gotten it right. Choosing a nominee of the stature of Judge Gorsuch shows a continued commitment to originalist and textualist principles that served our country well with Justice Scalia, and will continue to serve us well in the future.

“I am particularly heartened that President Trump has nominated a justice who will play a key role as the Court decides issues related to Life, religious liberty, and the proper role of government. Judge Gorsuch’s rulings and comments on these matters gives me great hope that he will be a forceful conservative voice on the Court for decades to come.

“I look forward to a speedy confirmation in the Senate, and I call on our Senators to get Judge Gorsuch on the bench as quickly as possible to get the Court back on track.”
