On Friday morning, the United States Senate voted to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch as a U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice.
Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan issued the following statement regarding Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“During his campaign, President Trump promised the American people a new Supreme Court Justice, one that would respect the laws of our nation and fairly interpret the Constitution. Today, that promise from President Trump was fulfilled as the Senate confirmed Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.”
“The Alabama Republican Party commends those senators who chose to expedite Judge Gorsuch’s nomination on behalf of the American people. We are proud of the strong support from Alabama’s Senators, Senator Shelby and Senator Strange, throughout the entire confirmation process. During his confirmation hearing, Judge Gorsuch proved time and time again that he is dedicated to upholding the rule of law in our nation. Through hours of questioning and strict scrutiny from Democrat senators intending only to damage his reputation, Judge Gorsuch held fast and answered every question openly and honestly.”
“We look forward to seeing an individual with such strong character, consistent judicial balance and passion for the law serve on our nation’s highest court.”
