Gardner Statement on Supreme Court Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch

WASHINGTON —Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today released the below statement on President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch, who serves on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, to the Supreme Court: 

“Judge Gorsuch is one of our country’s brightest legal minds with significant experience as a federal judge and a private litigator. A former Supreme Court clerk for Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy, Judge Gorsuch has learned from some of the most exceptional, disciplined, and faithful interpreters of the law. He is an ardent defender of the Constitution and he has the appropriate temperament to serve on the nation’s highest court. Judge Gorsuch also adds to the court's Western perspective, with his understanding of uniquely Western issues like water and public lands issues. I’m enthusiastic about the native Coloradan’s nomination and will work to ensure that his confirmation process is fair, thorough, and expedient.”
