Washington, D.C. –Alabama Attorney General and Chairman of the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) Luther Strange released the following statement regarding Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court:
“There are few issues more important than choosing Supreme Court Justices who will honor the original intent of the Constitution and uphold the rule of law, and President Trump made a tremendous pick by nominating Neil Gorsuch. Judge Gorsuch is one of the most respected legal minds in America today, which is why he was unanimously confirmed to one of our nation’s highest courts. His experience both in the private sector as well as at the Department of Justice give him a well-rounded background to fill the vacancy of the late Justice Scalia.
“President Trump went further than any candidate in history by sharing his list of potential Supreme Court nominees well in advance of Election Day. The American people have spoken on this issue, and it is time for the Senate to give Judge Gorsuch a fair hearing and confirm him so that the Supreme Court can function at full capacity.”
