FROM THE WHITE HOUSE – A little over a month ago, the world was introduced to Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. Ten days later, after multiple meetings with Senators, Republican and Democrat alike, the support for Judge Gorsuch is incredible.
Here are just some of the positive things Senators had to say after meeting with Judge Gorsuch:
- “I would encourage all of my fellow Senators to meet with him, give him a fair shake. He deserves that.” –Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT)
- “I know he has a stellar record from the standpoint of his pedigree, how he came up through his education process, everything about him.” –Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV)
- “I will push for a hearing and I will push for a vote.” –Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE)
In all, eight Democrat senators have stated publicly that Judge Gorsuch deserves a hearing and a vote. Judge Gorsuch is bringing Senators together on both sides of the aisle.
There is no better choice to carry on Justice Antonin Scalia’s incredible legacy of protecting our freedoms.
In the coming weeks, as Judge Gorsuch meets with more Senators and continues the nomination process, he will need our support. He deserves an up or down vote. A filibuster of this Judge is an abuse of the Senate Rules.
