“Colorado’s Neil Gorsuch is an exceptional choice to serve on the Supreme Court, and I was honored to cast my vote for him today,” said Gardner. “Throughout the confirmation process, I urged my colleagues to support this supremely qualified, mainstream jurist who will serve our country well. Neil Gorsuch has a deep understanding of Western issues and future generations of Coloradans will benefit from his service to our country.
