Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court

NEIL GORSUCHWashington, D.C. – Tonight, U.S. Reps. Ken Buck (CO-04), Scott Tipton (CO-03), Mike Coffman (CO-06), and Doug Lamborn (CO-05) issued the following statement responding to President Trump’s nomination of Colorado native, Judge Neil Gorsuch, to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy:

“The nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court is welcome news. Judge Gorsuch’s record in the Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit shows that he will defend the original intent of our Founding Fathers and preserve the fundamental rights of Americans protected by the Constitution. It will be great to see a Coloradan serve on the country’s highest court, and considering he was confirmed for his current position by voice vote in the U.S. Senate in 2006, we encourage our Colorado colleagues in the U.S. Senate to support Judge Gorsuch’s swift confirmation.”

Representative Ken Buck also released the following statement on the nomination:

“I commend the President’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by the untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia. I’m confident Judge Gorsuch will succeed in the Supreme Court because he holds sound judicial interpretation in such high regard. As a Coloradan, I know Mr. Gorsuch will take his common sense values with him to the nation’s highest court.”
