Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement in regards to President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next justice to the United States Supreme Court:

“Judge Gorsuch will be a fitting replacement to fill the late Justice Scalia’s seat and I am pleased to see him chosen as our next Supreme Court nominee. His impressive resume reflects his devotion to the Constitution and his opinions demonstrate that he has a great legal mind and exercises the restraint of a proper judiciary.

Both sides of the aisle should be able to agree that he has the experience, intellectual prowess and textualist mindset that our highest court demands. I am confident Judge Gorsuch will uphold and defend our Constitution and I look forward to a swift confirmation by the United States Senate so he can get to work on the many important cases pending before the court.”
