WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:
“Our next Supreme Court justice will make decisions that impact our country for generations. That’s why it’s important to confirm someone who will apply the law, not legislate from the bench.
“Judge Gorsuch is a mainstream nominee with an extensive and impressive judicial career. He has a record of fiercely defending religious freedoms. His experience with issues affecting the Rocky Mountain West will make him unique among his fellow justices. I look forward to a thorough confirmation process.”
